There is Freedom is losing Control and letting Jesus have His Way.

Have you ever met a new face and instantly liked the person?  I met a new friend named “Mel” at my international office (Starbucks) and we had a great time chatting about websites, entrepreneurship and God Spots.  By far the best fun was talking about how “God periodically authenticates Himself and i get to blog about it.”  For my new readers… that is a “God Spot”.

The bearded lady was there in a lively conversation with herself and very over dressed for the heat of the day.  She kind of fits into my Starbucks office much like Norm fits into the Cheers bar.  One day i will learn her name.  She welcomes me with the greeting, “Hello, Father”.  I welcome her with a cheerful question of how she is doing?  She never complains.  She is OK with life.

It makes me wonder what it takes for you to be “OK” with life?  Do you have goals, dreams and expectations?  I’ve met very few people who can honestly say, they are not driven to reach certain expectations.  These few people who are content with life and not driven by goals, have a common characteristic.  It is an undeniable love of Jesus.  They each are content to allow God to be God and appreciate the abiding of Jesus in a very real and tangible way.

It is as if each day is started with a knowledge that Jesus has a plan and the person is willing to allow Jesus to work it out in the day’s activities.  The freedom found in living out life with this attitude of trusting Jesus for the path and outcome of the day is indescribable.  Maybe one day… you will experience the freedom in Christ allowing you to participate in His day.

Today, that God Spot was lived out in the meeting of new friend at Starbucks.  Thanks Mel.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
