In my walk with God, during different seasons, I have found myself using a particular adjective to describe Him over and over.
During that period, that's what He is to me, and no other word adequately describes Him.
One time, it was Amazing. And day after day during that time, I was stupefied with just how ...amazing He was.
In this season, this Christmas season, a word rattles around in my head as I think about Jesus.
And it is not what you think.
The word is ...crazy.
Yeah, I know.
I feel uncomfortable even thinking this, much less writing it. But the Lord seems to be okay with it, so here goes: God is...crazy.
I say that with the utmost respect. YOU know that, Lord.
I don't know. The Lord just blows my mind. So much so that I have no words.
Sorry...I take that back. There are just simply no words, except maybe crazy.
Recently, I have been studying the book of Esther. And goodness gracious me, the Lord be doing some crazy, crazy stuff in there.
If you get like 20 minutes (I know...it's a lot to ask for *- but I promise, it's worth every second), read Esther 3 (from verse 8) to the end of Esther 7.
You can read the whole book if ya want too. It's not long.
Here's a little backstory:
When I think about how the Lord orchestrated every single event in Esther's story, especially in those two days from Esther 5 -7, I am blown away. And to think that He is doing that in my life, too?
I think my brain will implode when I see the culmination of all the work He's doing.
Ha! Little wonder we'd be getting imperishable bodies.** With how awed we'd feel, we'd need all the help we can get to keep it together. 😊
*I'm being sarcastic as heck. 😊 The read is worth every second, though.
**1 Corinthians 15:53
