Lord, surprise us. (pg 94 Draw the Circle)
Yes, that’s my prayer too! Along with: “Lord, make me uncomfortable.”
Prayer adds an element of surprise to your life that is more fun that a surprise party or surprise gift or surprise romance. In fact, prayer turns life into a party, into a gift, into a romance. (pg 97 Draw the Circle)
I’m finding this to be very true in my life.
God has surprised me recently in the area of TIME. We all have the same 24 hours in a day and there never seems to be enough time to get everything done. I’ve found that since I’m devoting my early mornings to God in prayer and His Word, my hours seem to multiply. It’s pretty crazy, actually.
There are things on my to-do list that I’m finally able to accomplish. My productivity has soared. I’m more responsible with how I spend my moments in the day. It’s kind of like I’m on God’s time instead of Starr’s time – and His time is making my life SOOO much more manageable. I said manageable, not perfect! Don’t think I’m super mom by any means, there’s still umteen loads of laundry upstairs to do…And, I still stay up wayyy too late, ya’ll! I gotta get more sleep, I tell ya!
Ecclesiastes 8:5 says it like this:
Those who are wise will find a time and a way to do what is right, for there is a time and a way for everything, even when a person is in trouble.
Lord, make me wise and teach me how do what is right. Help me be on God’s time, not my time. Surprise me throughout the day with Your divine appointments.
How about you?
Tell us in one quick sentence how God is surprising you on this journey – big or small.
