~ Take The Lord Out of The Box ~

Do you have the Lord, the way He does things and church wrapped in a neat pretty box?

Sometimes things with Jesus can be messy... I heard someone talking about child birth and the way that the Lord chose to do it... It is His will, it is in order, and yet it is messy..

Would you let Jesus spit in your eyes?

Mark 8:23-25: So Jesus took the blind man's hand and led him out of the village. Then he spit on the man's eyes and put his hands on the man and asked, "Can you see now?" The man looked up and said, "Yes, I see people, but they look like trees walking around." Again Jesus put his hands on the man's eyes. Then the man opened his eyes wide and they were healed, and he was able to see everything clearly.

What if He wants to do things that are out of your comfort zone and nontraditional for you or in your church?

Will you let Him or will you miss what He wants to do in your life?

Just pondering what I was reading this morning and asking the Lord to show me where I may have Him in a box!

Take me out of my comfort zone Lord!!!

And I am letting You out of the box!
