I've been praying about something and thinking and figuring and wondering and talking and God has finally cracked my skull open with some divine light. The answer I have sought is unreasonable.
It demands that people do something that makes no sense. It requires action that won't fit into a formula. It can't be measured or quantified by results. It will not necessarily produce anything that will prove we did the right thing. This plan that God insists upon is all together unreasonable.
I will have nothing to stand on except my own conviction. And that is something I myself have doubted all along. It is inescapable. It is unreasonable. A few silly people have said that my input will count for something and here I am, advising we all be unreasonable.
In a few hours I will have an unreasonable discussion that leaves me vulnerable for failure. I have asked God to promise that this leap of faith will be successful but he won't pinky swear. He says we have to be unreasonable. Something about the substance of things we hope for and the evidence of things we can't see. In other words, no promises Sweet Pea.
I hope you'll take a moment or two to pray for this unreasonable situation although I'm sure you're wondering what in the world I'm rambling about. I'd like to say I'll fill you in later, but probably not. It's not only unreasonable, it's private.
The only reason I'm willing to have this get-together of the unreasonable is that it took an unreasonable act to save my life.
So as far as I'm concerned, the unreasonable is entirely...reasonable.

p.s. The Mr. leaves for Alabama first thing in the morning to attend his dad's surprise 80th birthday party on Saturday. He'll return Sunday and back to work on Monday. It's a 12 hour drive one way and he's going it alone; between work and school Daboyz and I couldn't come long. Please pray for his safety and that he stays awake driving! Thanks!
