I was thinking, since everyone makes lemonade from the sour lemons thrown at them, what if I were to do something really different? What if I were to make...
...I don't know...
My life has always been different.
God has called me to do so many things alone.
He has called me to do so many things that are not of my natural abilities.
My ministries have always been out there on the limb of faith.
|I love these little "screen bean figures"|
I love cucumber in my water. You should see the reactions of waitresses faces when I request cucumber instead of lemons in my water. One waitress scolded me, "We can't do that!" Like it was the restaurant's policy or something. I got scolded just because I asked for something DIFFERENT.
I've decided: I'm not settling for lemonade!
LORD, let us (You and I) make something totally different than "lemonade" out of this mess. Lead me, guide me, into something totally unplanned or unexpected (on my part).
Cause this now solitary life to count for something grand in Your scheme of things. Cause this testimony-filled life to be a source of encouragement, strength, and inspiration to others.
Give me inspiration to continue to write my memoir about all You have done in my life and cause me to be diligent about it.
Use me, my LORD. For if You don't surely I will dry up like a grape in the sun. Cause me to lead the way for others through their wildernesses, LORD.
Use me - together (You and I) can do so much in these last years of my life. Use me, use my home. A ministry house is still promised in your "restoring the years the locust have eaten." Well, it doesn't have to be an additional house. It can be this one. Here I am, LORD....here I am...
In Jesus' Life-giving Name! So Be It. Amen.
