In a Box...

This commentary may be a little off topic but has been weighing on me so here we go!

Several people have asked us if we have seen or felt the results of our fast yet. Well, to be completely honest our goal has been to let go and let God (yes as cliche at it may seem, it is true). We entered this fast time expecting to learn, nothing more. We expected to learn about ourselves in regards to our needs and wants and to learn about God and His desires. Now that I look back on that it is a bit limiting to tell God you only want to learn about needs, wants and desires and nothing else. As if seeing Him move in other ways was not allowed.

Well, once again God reminds us that He cannot be contained by our rules and guidelines. God showed up in a big way. We have done our share of learning and we are beyond excited to share all those things. BUT we have also been humbled by those who have given to us, blessed by those who have shared with us and re-energized in our exploration of God's word. All things we did not expect but are grateful to have.

So, next time you commit to seeking God be preapred, when you seek you will find, even if it is more than you bargained for!

Just as Jesus said

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." Matthew 7:7
