I Love a Good Mystery!


Day #16 – 30 Day Challenge

c15Today begins the second half, the downhill run, of our 30-day challenge. Whether or not you’ve been able to join in on the first 15 days, I hope you will engage from here on in! (But even if you don’t feel comfortable sharing, keep stopping by!)

This particular entry from Thirty Days of Devotion isn’t hard for me to accept. I can fully wrap my brain around God’s power. But when I’m in the throes of this season, when I’m, as the song in Rocky III says, pushing and getting ready for the next fight, I wonder.

I don’t doubt God’s ability, but sometimes I wonder about His willingness.

I’ve seen His miracles – both small and huge, natural and unexplained. And yet, when I’m consumed with my daily life and overwhelmed by the needs therein … seems like sometimes, I expect His “noes” more than His “yeses.”

Likely due to my own lack of faith and negative anticipation.

But He is God of the impossible. And you folks who have commented here in the last 2 weeks have declared that more than once in your stories.

I’m so thankful for the witnesses that you have been!

Your Turn: What is the most grandest impossibility you’ve seen God do? I’d have to refer to the story I told y’all about my friend who was shot. The gun was pressed to her forehead at a 90-degree angle, yet the bullet traveled across her face, barely touching anything in the interior of her head and lodged in her right lung. Just before the man pulled the trigger, she said, “Oh, Jesus, save me.” And He was faster than a speeding bullet! The strangeness of her injuries and her quick recovery were AMAZING, and to God’s glory!

Tomorrow we’ll be starting the next spiritual season. I can’t wait to hear your input in this section.
