He spent the week teaching beginning English with his daughter Sarah as well as teaching a marriage and family series which included a seminar for singles.
During lunch one of the days, I shared with him some insights I had received from watching Andy Stanley's series – The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating. On June 1st, I began a journey that focuses on becoming Mr. Right, not looking for Miss Right.
I shared this journey with Mike and he asked if he could share the commitment with the group. I said,
Well…the next day we were having lunch and soon I had earned the nickname,
because of the commitment. I thought it was hilarious!
Soon…several people were engaged in the conversation and wanted to know if they could:
- Pray for me
- Provide suggestions
We then reverted back to a time when Mike and my old roommate had created a series for Awana entitled The Bling Brothers. Our creative juices began to flow and soon we had developed a skeleton structure for a promo video for next year's camp in which Unavailable Dave becomes Available Dave. It read like a trailer for a blockbuster movie!
All jesting aside…the journey of:
“Becoming the person who you are looking for is looking for.”
has been a good one. God is teaching me so much about what it means to trust Him in this area as surrender areas of my life to him.
So for the next 303 days…I will be known as “Unavailable Dave” – I hope you will follow the journey. The name of the blog series is now being changed from The One-Year Challenge to Unavailable Dave. It just has that “Je ne sais quoi” about it!
[This post is part of the newly renamed Unavailable Dave series.]
