God has a mighty BIG sense of humor

“Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.” Isaiah 46:10 NLT

God has a mighty BIG sense of humor. This has been a, connect the dots week for me. I have been taking a trip down memory lane as I reconnect with my old friends, family and colleagues more and more.  They give me the opportunity to take a look at my life in hindsight….

It amazes me that I can say I have NO regrets. If I had the power to magically undo ANYTHING I have done thus far, I wouldn’t. I’ve spent too much time in the past doing, the “what if I had?” dance.  Mentally nailing myself to a cross and using past actions to halt me from moving forward; oh how I was deceived.

To paraphrase one of my mentors from a far Joyce Meyer “My greatest testimony is that I am still here!”  My second is that I am redeemed and saved by the grace of God.  That I have the ability to plead the blood over my life and say the name that is above every name… Jesus and get my prayers answered from my heavenly father.

I say that God has a mighty BIG sense of humor because if I was to have seen where and how my life has gone to get me to where I am today… 20 years ago, 10, or even 5….  I would have probably looked at God like he was crazy.  Good thing he is the only one of us that sees our end before the beginning…
