Sometimes it won’t make sense.
Sometimes it won’t seem logical.
Sometimes it will come across radical in appearance and reckless in execution.
Sometimes people will ask you questions you can’t answer and give you “advice” that will be the opposite of what you want or need to hear.
Sometimes you will question if you even hear from God.
Sometimes you will wonder why you ever thought heading down some path of uncertainty was an intelligent decision…. why you ever dared to believe that something miraculous could happen to you… why you ever thought God could use such a normal existence to shake up the monotony of life circumstance and inspire change, that makes a difference, that creates one of those stories.
This is faith.
This is trust.
This is obedience.
If it were easy to live this way, Moses wouldn’t be so inspiring, now would he?
But in the midst of such uncertainty-filled moments, you will also feel alive in ways you never knew possible. You will feel your faith deepening to levels you never thought you were capable of reaching. You will feel your heart beating to a pulse of peace that you cannot articulate into words. You will feel the tug of your thoughts as you see and experience the world in such a different way, and you know, you will never be the same.
So sometimes, against all logic, against all common sense, against every natural instinct in your responsible human head, sometimes, sometimes, you just have to do it anyway.
Because sometimes this:
Moses said, “If your presence doesn’t take the lead here, call this trip off right now. How else will it be known that you’re with me in this, with me and your people? Are you traveling with us or not? How else will we know that we’re special, I and your people, among all other people on this planet Earth?” God said to Moses: “All right. Just as you say; this also I will do, for I know you well and you are special to me. I know you by name.” Moses said, “Please. Let me see your Glory.” -Exodus 33:15-18
