So I woke up today and went to my online Bible reading page to see what today’s passage was. To my surprise, they didn’t factor in a Feb 29! The only ‘break’ I get in a year from the chronological guide.
Well. This means today’s post will be a random blurt of mine.
I want to say:
18 days till I fly home! Yay!
23 days till Easter! YAY!
Flu! YA-, well maybe not..
God works in mysterious ways! YAY!
So I figured I’m going to write a bit about
my flu the last point. I have had it for over a week now and it doesn’t seem to be going away as fast as I would like it to been doing some extra thinking lately and been astounded at the way God weaves together little threads to form a larger and larger fabric that depicts His story. I can barely wrap my head around a basketball offensive play and the multi-directional off-the-ball runs by 2/3 players, or the amazing seemingly telepathic ability of ManUtd at times, and here He is, weaving an almost infinite number of threads from an almost infinite number of places, to fit tightly into one single pattern! Don’t bother with David Blaine specials – just watch God at work!
Take Passion 07. That was AMAZING. Hadn’t heard of it 6 months before. 6 months later I found myself with 23000+ others having my eyes and ears opened like they hadn’t had before! And what were the little threads? Matt McGee. Tim (yes I would have really considered not going if you had not managed to make it, and this story on its own requires a few more threads to justify itself that even I can’t begin to identify myself!), Rodney, Rodney’s friends, plane ticket!, Matt’s church, his family and friends, Christmas holidays, youth camp…that’s all I can think of for now. And the ripples afterwards – can’t begin to describe how deep they resounded. PLUS I just got news the day before yesterday about some stuff from Lydia – amazing how long these ripples can keep going for.
God moves in a mysterious way. Sometimes you wish you could unpack it. But upon reflection, all I need to know is His will is always good, pleasing and perfect. So perhaps it’s better that the mystery remain for greater amazement!
