Getting Over My Proud Self

Friday night, God seemed to gently nudge me. I want to show you something special. My husband and I were driving up the driveway in the dark. The only thing I saw was the moon.

Probably wasn’t God talking to me.

Look at the moon.

“This is gonna sound crazy, but I think God wants me to pay attention to the moon tonight.”

“Why?” Rick said.

“I’m not sure.”

Then the moon disappeared behind the trees. Guess it was just my imagination.

Keep looking.

“There it is,” Rick said.

“Oh, yeah. Looks like it’s right over the center of the driveway.” I took a couple of pictures through the windshield. Too fuzzy.

It wasn’t God.

Rick opened the sunroof. “Try it from up there.”

I stared through the opening into the patch of night sky.

And hesitated.

I bet I can’t take a picture of the moon from this far away. In the dark.

“Here,” Rick said. “I’ll hold your phone while you crawl through.”

I wanted to say never mind. Dumb idea. Just keep driving.

I didn’t want to look like a fool.

But what if God was talking to me? Calling me to an adventure? To something new?

Could I trust Him…even though I didn’t know the outcome?

Balancing on the console, I poked my head and arms through the sunroof–up to my waist.

“Oh. Wow.” Surrounded by the cool air, it felt as though I viewed the night from a balcony.  The stars were so pretty they took my breath away. And the moon! Look at the moon! Centered above our driveway…just for me.

 

Thank You, God. I snapped a picture and eased back into the car.

“Well?”

“There’s a whole ‘nother world out there,” I said breathlessly.

Listen up, proud self. You’ve knocked me out of a lot of blessings, but no more!

How do you sense God talking to you? Has He called you to a new adventure?

P.S. One more sweet thing….
