“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things. ”- Ecclesiastes 11:5
It’s satisfying coming across verses that aren’t cliche catchphrases of the Christian world. I really like this one. We don’t know what God has in store for us but we can know that he is marvelous and unchanging and cannot act contrary to who he is.
It’s truly amazing when something eventuates when you would’ve settled for far less.
Last night I was prepared for an enjoyable catch up with my YITS friends and that certainly happened, but what followed with the last six of us there was nothing short of God doing something wonderful.
Around ten’ish it looked like things were finishing up, Clacy, Sam, Dan, Janice and a few of the others left. The six of us still there: Jess, Iain, Kat, Mark, Dave and myself retreated to the backroom to escape the the remains of a disputible game of All Play Pictionary, pods and tim-tam wrappers, spilt coffee and chai-tea syrup (after some rather stupid dares) and pizza boxes.
Someone asked the general question of, “How’s the God stuff been going lately?” and as we talked our way around the room the night exploded into this facinating, real, God filled conversation. We took it to 3am, spent some time praying and sitting there in silence. It is both inspiring and worrying and encouraging to hear how things have been.
My sincere thanks for their wisdom, honesty, courage and desire to let God do what he will with the blueprint of who they are.
