There are many times and many surprising ways that God shows up and changes even the most hopeless situations…God enters a heart-breaking situation and, by revealing His presence, love, strength, resources, and specific guidance, creates a path through the most painful wildnerness….We never know how He is going to show up.”  –Cloud/Townsend

Ask God to surprise you in your current situation; don’t be prescriptive of how He needs to solve your problem.  He’s God. He’s got the big picture. He knows how to bring beauty from ashes, and good from evil. He’s right there with you, fighting for you even if you cannot see/feel Him. Know that God is going to be creative and custom-fitting with how He orchestrates what you are going through. Our job is to trust and grow. And then applaud Him.
