Linking up with Lisa-Jo and the great group that participates in Five Minute Friday. The main rule is to write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking – on the topic that Lisa-Jo posts about each week.
The topic for this week: Imagine
Not that it’s not always true to some extent or another, but I can’t even begin to imagine what God is up to right now.
I can’t begin to imagine what He is planning to bring out of the craziness and messiness of the last seven months.
I can’t begin to imagine what’s behind His timetable of essentially keeping me ‘stuck’ in this place of waiting and almost being held hostage by insurance issues and red tape.
I can’t begin to imagine how He’s going to bring things to some sort of resolution, when already complex health issues continue to get increasingly compounded.
I can’t begin to imagine how He’s going to provide for needs that seem even more astronomical now.
I can’t begin to imagine what He’s going to bring out of the ashes of this past year, when the price my health has caused me to pay is at the cost of so much – my house, my job, my independence, and (much of) my support system.
I can’t begin to imagine where He’ll have me next now that nearly every aspect of my life is so uncertain and up in the air.
I can’t begin to imagine how or when He’ll bring about a new normal to my life – or what normal even is anymore.
I can’t begin to imagine what good He’s going to bring out of all of this.
And I can’t begin to imagine how He’s going to use this for His glory.
But that’s why He’s God and I’m not.
And so I’ll try to keep clinging to the confidence that He knows what lies around each corner, every twist and turn, and that nothing about any of this is catching Him off guard.
