Again… great song. 🙂
Not the point of this post.
I had a conversation with a friend who really changed a lot in my mind. Shook up the ideas I held to be true. Generally speaking, about life. Specifically? God.
Touchy touchy touchy… I know. Who really likes opening your mind and heart to other people when doing so will most certainly cause you to rethink things? And when it comes to God, it is sort of one of those defining things. Like, the direction my compass points. And if it doesn’t point to Him, in the direction He has always been in for me… then what does that mean?
I’ve thought long and hard about the things we talked about. I won’t really go into them here, because they are incredibly personal and explaining what I believe and why I believe it doesn’t really prove anything to anybody. I know the truth. And I’m not really ready to share the epiphanies I have experienced. They are too close to my heart and, no offense, dear reader, but I just don’t trust you.
It was a very meaningful conversation. Short. But incredibly poignant. Directed straight at my heart and my mind simultaneously. I don’t think I ever really told my friend why or what changed. But something big happened.
And now, what I have been thinking is, “Don’t put God in a box.” He isn’t in a box for me anymore. My eyes have been opened to the vast possibilities that He can do. I am amazed. And I love it. I love the sheer feeling of amazement I have.
I am thankful, today, for that conversation. I wish my friend knew that.
