Laying Down Myself
Thursday, June 27, 2013
There are times that it feels like God shows up and this week has been full of those experiences. From watching people who are struggling with addictions firmly decide that God is worth more to them than alcohol or drugs, to seeing how people finally grasped the hand of their Creator and allowed Him to pull them out of pits that they have fallen into, it's been a week of God showing up. It's funny because even in little things like accidentally getting the wrong leader has showed his goodness and omniscience. I think it's crazy. God doesn't just work in big ways. He works in quiet conversations on the beach where someone who you never expected to have anything to pour into you, makes you realize the extent of His grace. It's funny because conversations in hallways, past curfew, make you more willing and able to pray for someone you love. It's not like He only works through miracles. He works through repetition. The Holy Spirit lays things on people's hearts and these people hand deliver messages of God to you. I've seen it before, but I have never seen the extent to which I saw it this week. I'm just saying. . . Wake up! Expect great things from God and He will show up. He changes lives. Grab His hand that he has extended to you for so long and RISE UP!
