This morning I watched the new trailer for Toy Story 4. 

I was one happy little space ranger because Toy Story is my second favorite movie series of all time!
At the end of the brilliant trailer the following words pop up:
“On the road of life there are old friends, new friends, and stories that change you.”
As I read those luminous words on my phone screen, it dawned on me that these sixteen words sum up much of our current road trip.
Our daily discovery is that nobody fights alone.
We fight, we are not alone.
There are countless people in our fight.
I think the enemy seriously underestimated the amount of brave, beautiful people who join us in our fight.
he thought he was just starting something with us.
he thought we would be easy to snuff out.
he failed to see the army standing behind us.
It’s made up of old friends and new friends.
he failed to hear the voice of my God say “this story will change you, it’s going to hurt, but if you will hold onto me, glory will come from this story.”
The story has brought crazy changes…
I have new scars, new appreciation, new diet, new outlook, new purpose.
We are changed.
As I write this I look down at my shirt, it is covered in little gray whiskers. My beard is falling out AGAIN. I’m not as bothered this time, I know it will be back. I’m okay with being a freaky looking hairless dude again.
My leg is pretty sore because I fell down in a parking lot yesterday.
I almost died last week, but I didn’t.
I put up a fight.
But…
Nobody fights alone.
The enemy seriously underestimated the amount of brave, beautiful people who join us in our fight.
We have surprising new roads to walk.
It’s okay…
We are not alone.
Nobody walks alone.
So here we walk through all the changes with the unchanging One…
“To infinity and beyond!!”
