I like to shake things up.
I like to show up in your life
… in unexpected places
… at unexpected times
… for unexpected reasons.
I like to surprise you.
My thoughts for your life are better than your thoughts for your life.
And sometimes to re-direct your life, I’ll show up in unexpected ways.
When I show up to surprise you it may
… catch you off guard
… throw you off balance
… leave you scratching your head.
But the discomfort or the perplexity of the moment won’t last.
Just decide, in advance, to follow Me…. no matter what.
Because when I shake things up, I have good reason.
When I shake things up, I plan to take you on a turn for your good and My glory.
When I shake things up, you will stand in awe at how I can make things work out so well.
When I decide to surprise you, I need you to
… stop and look
… be attentive
… be ready to hear and then act on what I say or what I show you
And try not to be afraid of the surprise or the “shake up”
Know that I see you. I feel your heart. I hear your cries.
And sometimes… I respond by saying “Surprise!”
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. Isaiah 55:8
