God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson

Loving God in the Moment

for whom do you pray?
The last few days have been interesting. God has moved me down some paths I don't walk down easily. OK... so He pushed a bit.
After meeting with a friend I sat back on my haunches and scratched my head.
She said something about praying for her to take inititiative to speak about her faith to others. I'm still scratching my head over this one. What an awesome prayer to pray. And I wondered to myself, "When did I do that?"
I realize I did. Oswald Chambers convicted me to pray until we are so "identified with Himself that we are roused up to get His view about the people for whom we pray."
It was about the time that God was calling me into silence and solitude... about the time that my oldest son was in the 10th grade...about the time when God was romancing me in a way I had never been romanced before.
And He romances me still. In this romance He brings people across my daily life that He shares His heart with. I love being in love with God. And I am so thankful that He loves me as well. Who wouldn't want to share this blessed relationship? I think about my oldest son, my youngest son. My youngest fell in love first. He would spend hours listening to a particular song on the computer and just lay on the couch thinking about this girl. He would talk about her. He would just want to be around her. He would tell anyone that wanted to listen how wonderful she was.
My oldest son did the same. But, I lived half way around the world when his romance began. He still talked and talked about his discoveries of this woman. It was wonderful to watch as she unfolded before him.
So, as I think back about my love affair with the Creator of the Universe, I realize, I'm twitterpated!
And being twitterpated allows me to share with anyone that wants to listen about IN Whom I am twitterpated...
So, my question?
Maybe the prayer I will pray for my friend: "That she will fall so in love with Jesus, she can do nothing else but share Him. Because He will be so alive and active in her life - to her amazement - and that her love for Him will actually make her giddy."
Do I have the Joy and the Stamina? I believe that He has given me both. May He hold me close in the next few weeks and months and years that I have the opportunity to share HIM with anyone that I meet.

I remember one time, traveling with a friend on the east coast. I sat down for breakfast at a table that served 6. Two people were already there. They began to talk about God. I listened for a few minutes and interupted them... "I am so sorry, I couldn't help but over hear (we were all at the same table) and if you are going to talk about Jesus, well... I just have to talk with you."
A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
