Before the year began, God challenged me to believe in Him for the "big things" - to stop limiting Him based on my own doubts. To believe He would show up not like a trickle, or a stream, but like a flood. Our first flood came back in January when my husband was offered a job after six months of unemployment. Not just any job, but a job like the one we had been praying for, with great benefits, great work hours and a less stressful environment.
Last week, I was flooded with a blessing again. I had been praying for a family member that had broken off ties with us for quite some time. It's a complicated situation and one I just didn't see any resolution to. So how surprised was I, when I returned to work from a day off last week to find a voice mail from that person! After having very minimal contact for almost 6-7 years, it felt so good to hear their voice and catch up, if only briefly. I was filled with joy and praise and hope that old wounds can be further healed.
What an amazing God we serve!
