I hope you are living with the expectation that you could find yourself in Narnia at any moment, either for another visit or for the first time.
Some of us have become all grown up in the wrong way. I have met so many believers over the years who seem to have all sense of adventure in God “matured” out of them.
Through a wardrobe or a picture, in times of distress or joy, in a church full of life or utterly dead you might suddenly be taken there. Be open to the “suddenly” of God. It is not all about “Black shoes, flat shoes, wipe them on the mat shoes” in Christian living and ministry, always winter but never Christmas. Lent is not the only season of the soul. Don’t let people get to you too much to draw you into their lack of expectation. There are surprises in God that His people can scarcely believe for. He does abundantly above all we ask or think possible. If at the moment you are in a season of putting one foot in front of another and mot much more, God bless you for your obedience and faithfulness -sometimes survival is a significant achievement in the face of all odds, a proof of miraculous sustaining grace toward a yielded life – but remember to be open for the picture changing.
There are seasons of “Wooo Hoo! Here we go!” At any moment you could be lifted up off your feet by the wind of the Spirit. Hold on to your hat!
