I want my faith to be as strong and natural as breathing. So I start out by praying for God to use me to do His work. I also often pray for Him to direct my day. This week I have several days to myself, but they’re not being spent the way I would’ve expected. Such as yesterday. Although I rejoiced at the heavenly reward my former pastor received, saying good-bye to loved ones isn’t always easy. No, I hadn’t planned a funeral into my day.
Today, I prayed the same thing, only to spend most of the morning without power, find a little snake residing behind the breakers in the fuse box, and then lock myself and my cell phone out of the shop. (I need to get an extra key!) The lovely thing is, these detours don’t upset me. Instead, I pause in the thrill of expectation, waiting for God to reveal what’s next. R
