Can He?

I love that Nicodemus still questions and leaves room for God to do the impossible all at once.

“How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” -John 3:4

Even when all sorts of questions come to my mind–which happens often–I want to still leave room for that question at the end of my thoughts. I want to leave room for God to do the impossible and show me His ways rather than be stuck in my ways. I’d rather tag a question on the end than get caught up in logic and my ways. Especially because I have a few situations where I don’t see how they work or will work out yet…so I’m chatting with God and leaving the question so that I can:

“…take [my] stand and see this great thing which the Lord will do before [my] eyes.” -1 Samuel 12:16

  1. Excellent observation katy! It makes me think how lately I’ve realized I’m afraid to pray for big things or extrordinary things because i’m afraid they won’t happen and I’ll be disappointed in God. I’m learning to dream big because my God is big!

    • God is BIG was our “theme” last year at thrive and wow it did a number on my heart and still does…lately I’m throwing a twist into it by realizing that not only do I need to fully sign onto that truth, but I also need to TRUST big which is not always easy because like you said…if things aren’t happening how i want then i’m afraid they won’t or that i need to make them happen rather than trust Him…holding that tension between dreaming and surrender… wish we could hash this out on a walk together! soon 🙂
