Day 18: God Appointments
I am on a business trip with my husband,
living outside of my
all tucked in at my favorite coffee house with my bible & my computer,
that I had to leave.
Oh how I love the comfort of sitting with
in my own protective environment where I am in semi control.
Oh how everything is great when you are
intentional about being with
takes you out of your comfy cozy zone
& has you enter into an environment where you are not in control.
So you pray for GOD appointments.
And then HE answers in dynamic ways
that you could never imagine~
You meet someone for the first time
& then you hear that
And then you hear the guest speaker
say the name of
in front of 100s of people.
And then it happens again & again...
You realize that there are
GOD appointments all around us,
yet are we still enough & open enough
to the moving of the
who has moved you out of your comfort bubble
has so many blessings to bestow upon you.
And last night it happened again.
uniting me with another
who I met for the first time,
but as if I had known her my whole life.
Maybe this is what CHRISTMAS is all about~.
just waiting to flow from HIS heart to yours & mine.
They come in all different shapes & sizes,
even in the midst of a business meeting.
But if GOD can send
into the womb of a teenager girl
& then deliver
to be placed in a manger in a smelly stable
& call HIM a KING
Oh how HE can do so much more
in an opened heart
ready to RECEIVE not only
but THE MAN
who went from the cradle to the Cross
"GOD loves each one of us as if there is only one of us" (Saint Augustine)
So today try it.
Get out of your comfort bubble
THE BABY KING
everywhere you go
HE is everywhere.
And be bold to share
because you never know when
has a blessing waiting for you.
HE asks is for a willing & believing heart to
RECEIVE HIM who is our greatest
"HOW MANY KINGS" (listen to the song below)
show up in the most unlikely places~
as in a manger in a smelly stable?
