That is What I Do

 

 

I recently emailed a request to someone I was just getting to know and risked asking her to guide me in the steps I need to take for a project that has been a dream of mine.

 

To my delight, her response was “That is what I do!”

 

I have since recognized that this same response is what I often get from God.

 

I bring Him the broken pieces of my story and ask the impossible. I ask Him to fix it. He smiles and says, “That is what I do.”

 

I ask Him to help me understand what part is mine in someone else’s broken story. He smiles and says, “That is what I do”.

 

I ask Him to empower me to bring Him glory. He smiles and says, “That is what I do.”

 

I ask Him to forgive me for my unbelief and my careless thoughts. He smiles and says, “That is what I DID.”

 

Then I remember that on this side of the cross I can pray from victory and not for victory.

 

I thank Him for reminding me. He smiles and says, “That is what I do.”
