I tell you though, it has not been boring around here! If you want to see God show up, just get ready for some kind of big trip. You're sure to see Him. :)
While we were stranded our first time in Issaquah, what came to my mind was a reminder from the sermon at church that morning. In the fourth chapter of Acts, we see two of the Apostles thrown into jail after having been moved by the Holy Spirit to heal a man who was crippled since birth. Thousands of people came to believe in this man Jesus of Nazareth, because of what they had seen done to this man, so we can assume that the Apostles, along with being Spirit-filled, were aligned with God's will, right?..and where did it get them? Jail.
How did that happen? We so often believe that following Christ comes with a life of safety, and that uncomfortable situations just don't really happen...Well I think we can learn a lot from our dear Apostles that sometimes, even when living in the sight of God, life CAN get uncomfortable. The Apostles stood before the most important people the next day in 'court', and stood firm in their faith in Jesus and didn't back down, even when threatened....THOUSANDS were added the the numbers of those who put their belief in Jesus...
Friends, do believe that it's for a greater good that you may be in that place. God works in mysterious ways and He simply calls us to Love Him, and Love others. Fret not the small details, for even the birds of the air are fed daily, and have places to make their nests, and are we not more valuable than they are? (Matthew 6:25-34)
Now off I go to create order out of chaos-Pray for us ;)
