Blog, Daily Devotional

Unexpected.

Good morning, peeps!

I did not know that so many of my friends like horses.  I did not expect that.  That is so cool.  Guess what?  I still don’t.  I am now on the prayer lists of three who want to make sure I learn to love them.  I love y’all, I really do, but no.  Pray that I get delivered from the spirit of gluttony.  Or that whatever work God is still doing on my hubby-to-be gets finished soon so he can come on.  One of my friends, and this was a fun conversation, posed this question to me: Well, what if you were in a life or death situation and riding a horse was the only way you could escape?

Giddyup. 

So, this is going to be a very short blog and it will not be about Daniel.  I woke up in the middle of some good slobbery sleep at 1:27 a.m. with an urgency to pray for you all.  I don’t know what you have been dealing with, but God woke me up and said, “Pray for everyone connected to you.”  I have no idea who all that is so I made some group lists.  I prayed for people I see at work, folks I go to church with, people I’ve met growing up, people who read this blog…everybody.   And then I went back to sleep.

To be honest, being awakened with an urgency to pray unsettles me.  I immediately think the worst.  I have peace about it now.  Listen to Travis Greene’s “Made A Way”.   After I woke up for the second time, that song was ringing in my ears.  I asked God, “So, what’s up with that?”  In my spirit, I felt a reassurance that this is why He had me pray this morning.  There are going to be some “don’t know how, but you did it” moments for you today.  Expect the unexpected.

Ohhhh yeaaaah.

Made a way
Don’t know how but You did it
Made a way
Standing here not knowing how we’ll get through this test
But holding unto faith You know that
Nothing can catch You by surprise
You got this figured out and You’re watching us now
But when it looks as if we can’t win
You wrap us in Your arm and step in
And everything we need You supply
You got this in control
And now we know that

You made a way
When our backs were against the wall
And it looked as if it was over
You made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because You made a way
You made a way

–d.

  2. I also thank you for your prayers! I am coming to appreciate it when I wake up in the middle of the night, so I can pray. That spot halfway between sleep and awake, I seem to “focus” how God wants me to, and it seems more like I’m praying in His will, that my usual prayers. As I just became a follower of your blog, and then the next day, find out you prayed for me, (and all your other followers) WOW! God is awesome!
