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
Dreaming, vision casting, planning excite me. All of the possibilities and different obstacles to problem solve make everything even more fun. Over this past year, I learned the importance of flexibility and change within this area. Metaphorically speaking, I put all my eggs in one basket and lost a bit of my desire to dream “alone.” Dreaming with someone brought even more excitement and possibilities. But, of course, the basket developed holes and I found myself dreaming alone. For a long time, I couldn’t dream. I was numb. Nothing sounded exciting. Life, simply put, was boring. I ran to fight away the pain and to find the numbness. In the last few days, I’ve realized that I’m beginning to see the light. I’m beginning to come out of this deafening coma. I’m getting ready to dream again…and I’m terrified. This is me. Stepping out. Trusting God as evidenced below. Here goes.
