I was driving home after a wonderful lunch with a great friend, pondering all that is my life as of late. I write, speak, and teach every now and again. I dog sit, help people who need it and have coffee with friends.
It's not so shabby.
I am also believing for some impossible things. Things I cannot do on my own, things I cannot begin to make happen.
There are two lyrics that have been my friend and my nemesis the last nine months: "Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord..." and "I believe Your my healer...nothing is impossible for You. You hold the world in Your hands..." Inevitably when doubts begin to overcome my faith I start hearing these songs everywhere.
So back to the driving. As I wandered past the local high school, behind a too slow moving vehicle, I began to realize how many "flippant" prayer's God has been answering, how He's answering them in ways I would not have, hallelujah, and how I have no idea why He's placed these impossible desires on my heart--but the peace that surrounds them leaves no doubt He will make them happen.
Again, its not something I can make happen, its definitely not something I would dream for myself, but I definitely look forward to Him accomplishing all He has in mind to accomplish. For His glory and my good.
