I don’t know how He does it! I just know He does!
Two speaking engagements in one week — right on the heels of Thanksgiving, birthday parties, houseguests, hand injury, college class, minor surgery, AND home repairs (which required the moving of furniture and boxing of “stuff”) — all of which resulted in a bit of disequilibrium!
I have never been this “unprepared” this close to a deadline! When a bit of the furor had subsided, and I realized that time was a’ticking, I sat down to put it together.
But I was FROZEN! Nothing came! I mean NADA!
My communication with God felt strained. There was a “blockage” of some sort!
I tried again … to no avail. Not just silence, but deafening silence!
Then I started to freak out a bit. (Yep! I’ve been known to do that!)
Giving up around midnight, I fell asleep. I tackled it again the next morning with a bit of fear and trepidation … but something “magical” had happened …
except I don’t believe in magic. I believe in God!
I cannot take an ounce of credit for what happened next. This Holy One I serve continues to astound me in the most remarkable ways!
The keyboard was set ablaze by His Sprit as verses and principles pummeled like pearly pellets! Within a couple of hours, the skeletal framework (which I had prepared some time ago) was filled with meat — LOTS of good, hearty meat!
My spirit spun somersaults as my fingers frolicked their way to the final point.
And I stood in awe … in awe of Him … once again!
