Well hello there long lost friends! I know I have been MIA for quite a while...a month to be exact, but to be honest with you work is kicking my butt. I have been so exhausted and literally fall asleep every night before 9:00. I know, old womanlike. Anyways, I have had a relaxing Sunday and figured I should venture back into the blogging world. Something that has really spoken to me this weekend is the concept of "digging ditches". No, not like a construction worker or gravedigger, but in a spiritual sense.
Pastor Steven Furtick, my pastor, released his new book Greater recently and it has been our series at church these past two weeks. The book is hitting spiritual spots on my heart, especially this week. This week we talked about digging ditches. Elisha was asked to pray to the Lord to bring water to the armies who were dying of thirst in the dessert and God responded "make this valley full of ditches". He meant that if the armies would make preparations in faith that the Lord would show His faithfulness and bring the rain.
This really struck me. So many times I pray to God to make something happen in my life. I pray for reconciled relationships, I pray for the will to forgive, I pray for people to be saved, I pray for purpose, etc. etc., but rarely do I make the room for God to move.
