Expect the Unexpected

Like other parts of life, ministry brings unexpected twists and turns. Life circumstances, decisions of others, disease and tragedy can occur without a lot of warning. It causes uncertainty and confusion and honestly makes you more than a little bit weary when they hit you in clusters. 

When you choose to follow a God whose ways and thoughts are higher than ours however, things don't always go according to our plan. He provides opportunities for our faith in Him to increase and for our attention to be brought directly to Him. When our circumstances are unexpected to us we need to remember that they were expected by Him. Now God has a chance to show what He can really do.

Expecting the unexpected is an adventure worth experiencing when you know that God is in control.
