"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
These verses are like lotion on cracked, dry skin!! God is able. God is willing. God is at work within us. He does more than anything we ask or imagine.
When I was growing up I pictured my life to be a certain way. I dreamed about the man I would marry. I imagined the career I would have and the places I would travel. I truly believed my life would turn out close to what I pictured. Honestly, it is nothing like what I thought. Nothing.
My life is better, deeper, fuller and more extraordinary than anything I could have dreamed of. My husband is amazing. He is more loving, gracious and godly than what I would have even asked for. My career of raising children and painting murals....fulfills me completely...and yet it is so different than what I first set out to do. My God has given to me in ways that I never expected!! I am so grateful.
"...to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine..."
When we walk with the Lord, his power is at work within us. When we follow Him, he does things in our lives that are beyond what we could do for ourselves. He wants to give us an abundant life...full of all His power, His goodness, His plans. My prayer is that I stop trying to design my own life and let God do more than I ask, think or dream of.
YES LORD...do more than I can imagine....I am looking forward to it! :)
