the blessing of friendship [day three]….31 days of expecting God

It was a hard day.  Tired.  Sad.  Much to do.  Prayers for a wee one.  Missing big ones.

And then He showed up through Robin at (in)courage.

I wasn’t expecting Him to show up like that. To show me that just when I think that I have control over my flesh, it’s really not control until He has it all.

Then the day moved on and threw some surprises my way that mixed things up a bit.

I was going to be late to Bible Study because He needed me to serve some people that needed my help.. people stranded in an airport kinda far away.

Then I remembered His Word that Robin shared.

And I ran (really, I drove the minivan) to Bible Study and there they were… with smiles, and a room set up for some fellowship and hearts ready and homemade sausage balls waiting.

And it mattered not that I was late, or tired or scared.. because there He was as we shared and poured over His Word and encouraged one another.

I wasn’t expecting Him to show up like that.  Blessing the end of the day with His Promises and their smiles.  But He did and they do.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. – 1 Thesallonians 5:11

 

Did you have an unexpected blessing today?

  1. Beautiful! I need to remember to expect God everyday! I get so busy that I so often miss Him. Thank you for this reminder! What a great topic! Looking forward to more of your posts.

    I blog at "Only a Breath" and would love for you to stop by if you have time! I'm writing about "31 Days to Love Your Neighbor". It has been a very interesting journey to say the least! 🙂

    Have a great day!
