Day 86 – Saturday countdown

My short term furnished housing space was about to lose another resident if something wasn’t done today – Melissa’s contract was officially over as of Monday and if she didn’t choose to renew her contract she would be gone from my vicinity. I didn’t want to press her or seem too eager just in case she wanted to do the long-distance thing, but I wanted to hear her decision pretty soon so I could prepare my heart for it. (I’m a lady child, I know.) I think she could tell that I chomping at the bit to know so she left me a voicemail (I was in a business meeting) that said she had called the Lubbock hospital she was working for and that she had asked for a six-month extension. When I heard the voicemail I let out a small yelp. I wasn’t going to have to separate from my fiancée and this was ideal for me. Our closeness would grow closer or we would tire of one another and blow off the wedding for as they say, “Distance only makes the heart grow fonder.” I don’t want distance to make my heart grow fonder. I want my heart to grow fonder with her nearby – intimacy is built on an everyday push and pull and that’s the sort of relationship I wanted to build. It would be more fun but it would also be more difficult. I don’t want either one of us to fool ourselves into believing that we fit perfectly if we don’t see each other every day. I think you get my drift…

I spoke with my church architects again today and it seems that this call is going to be a daily occurrence. I don’t mind because they are such cool guys over there. They were just calling to see if they understood the latest analytics and they wanted to do some day to day analytics so that they could see if their actions created definitive spikes in viewership for their website. I don’t usually offer such services but for these guys I decided to. God might not show favoritism but I do. I also met with my Lubbock catering team and we made some strong decisions for their future growth. Other clients got some of my attention – my private Christian school is making the best moves for now and they were happy to hear it. It seems that my “top college in Texas” is stagnating some – I need to do some checks on that site because it has fallen below my standards.

My meditation today was based on how God can do exceedingly do more than I can ask or imagine. I know that is what it says and I know that nothing is impossible for God. But, I don’t even know what I would ask and I don’t do much imagining. This made me wonder why I don’t let me imagination run wild so that God can show Himself in ways that are incredible. Maybe the reason we don’t see God do the really cool stuff in this culture is because we imagine far below what God can do. We imagine what Apple might do next and we are amazed at it. We dream of what man can create for us – not what God can do for us. Am I reading this right? What do you think about God doing exceedingly more than you can imagine? I’d love to hear your thoughts and feelings on this…
