Day 29: God Appointment


The DOOR OPENS.

You walk through.

You get BLESSED

beyond your wildest dreams

because you know that

GOD is the ONE who

OPENED THE DOOR.

And yes we know that

JESUS is THE DOOR

and

yes

HE KNOCKS

and

yes it is our choice

to open

THE DOOR.

But this DOOR I am talking about is

another

GOD APPOINTMENT~

something that you had no control in making happen

as it is so far from your radar screen

that you KNOW that it has to be GOD.

I RECEIVED a WELCOMED UNEXPECTED INVITATION.

UNEXPECTED as it was from a new friend,

a new sister IN CHIRST,

who I had met last year

who was a GOD APPOINTMENT then,

and who I haven't seen since that day.

For when we met

we connected instantly,

as our LOVE OF JESUS

came pouring out.

At that time, I never knew when we would cross paths again. BUT GOD OPENS A DOOR

in HIS PERFECT TIMING.

AN OPEN DOOR~

an OPPORTUNITY to follow GOD

to where HE leads

to experience all that HE PLANNED for you

without your

KNOWING

but

ALL HIS KNOWING

because it is

HIS PLAN.

I accepted this INVITATION

with GREAT ANTICIPATION & EXPECTATION

because I KNEW this was from GOD.

The moment I walked through

THE OPEN DOOR

to a coffee shop

and saw her face

it was like we had just seen each other,

as we experienced our

GOD

at HIS best doing what

HE does best~

BEING GOD!

GOD is ALWAYS setting up APPOINTMENTS,

but oh how we get in the way when we don't

quiet our lives for a moment

to quiet our souls for a moment

to BE STILL for a moment

to actually

EXPERIENCE GOD

who always has PLANS for us,

that are way better than the plans

that we make

that we try to hold onto so tightly

in order to control

what we try to hold onto.

"For MY thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways MY ways," declares the LORD" (Isaiah 55:8)

Oh if we would only just

BE STILL long enough

to allow GOD to guide our

thoughts

and our ways

so will always be

walking in HIS WILL.

For GOD is so GRACIOUS

because

HE IS

"able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,

according to HIS power that is at work within us" (Ephesians 3:20)

because

HE IS

a GOOD GOD

who LOVES so big

that wherever you are

that whatever you are doing

no matter how small your moment appears to be

it is always big,

because

GOD IS IN IT.

So it may just seem like I met

someone

in a little coffee shop

to just talk for hours,

but it was so much more,

actually IMMEASURABLY MORE

because it was set up by

GOD

for the two of us not only to connect so deeply,

but to remind us of HIS power

and that

HE is always working behind the scenes

and in the scenes

to make us

BE STILL enough

to KNOW that GOD never stops being GOD.

For HE is forever FAITHFUL,

being so detail orientated in your life,

from your very beginning when HE knit you purposefully in your mother's womb,

and to continue to knit precious moments

into the

every day little things

that we tend to take advantage of

by not taking the time

to walk through

GOD'S OPEN DOORS

that may be dressed as

meeting for a simple cup of coffee.

Because when

JESUS is in the house

coffee is just coffee.

So let's FAST today from going too FAST.

Can you choose to BE STILL enough

when you are getting ready

to start running

FAST

to the next thing

and the next thing,

whether it is getting your mind to run so FAST into the tomorrows

or you multitasking madness,

so that you don't miss ALL that GOD is doing in your life.

Can you STOP and LISTEN to HIS small whisper as

HE directs your PATH in this moment

as you TRUST HIM with ALL your HEART

as you do not LEAN on your UNDERSTANDING

and as you ACKNOWLEDGE HIM in ALL your ways

so that you will not only just

SEE THE OPEN DOOR

that HE has OPENED

for you,

but you will actually

walk through it

because

you don't want to miss

GOD'S OPEN DOOR

for that is where you will experience

HIS

"IMMEASURABLY MORE"
