Five Minute Friday – Imagine



Linking up with Lisa Jo again this week to participate in Five Minute Friday.

Today’s word is IMAGINE– ready, set go –

When I think about the word Imagine – immediately I think about the following verse from Ephesians….

Ephesians 3:16-21

The Voice (VOICE)

“16 Father, out of Your honorable and glorious riches, strengthen Your people. Fill their souls with the power of Your Spirit 17 so that through faith the Anointed One will reside in their hearts. May love be the rich soil where their lives take root. May it be the bedrock where their lives are founded so that together 18-19 with all of Your people they will have the power to understand that the love of the Anointed is infinitely long, wide, high, and deep, surpassing everything anyone previously experienced. God, may Your fullness flood through their entire beings.

20 Now to the God who can do so many awe-inspiring things, immeasurable things, things greater than we ever could ask or imagine through the power at work in us, 21 to Him be all glory in the church and in Jesus the Anointed from this generation to the next, forever and ever. Amen.”

THIS has been my “God-view” recently. SO many things, personally, at work, with my writing…so many things happening that I can’t explain or fully understand.

But God.

Oh this God of mine has done so many awe-inspiring things, immeasurable things, things greater than we ever could ask or imagine…

How do I even begin to say thank you?

How do I offer worthy praise?

I don’t know that I can – but with all my heart I continue to be amazed at all He has done. And all we have done is just be the smallest bit willing to follow His will. I take such little “credit” for any of the good in my life. Even the willingness is God given!

I don’t know where you find yourself today…but trust me when I say (because I only have 5 minutes for goodness sake and I can’t share it all now) that I have been to the Valley, I have felt anger and frustration and anguish at life and wondered how could it all be worth it.

And I have been carried by a Father that loves me more than I can imagine and He has lavished on me this great big love of His.

Awe-inspiring things, immeasurable things, things greater than we ever could ask or imagine…

And He wants to do the same for you. Will you trust Him today with the difficult so you can experiences the joys of the future?

    So thankful that He is in control and that we can Trust Him, even when we don’t understand. I have experienced His goodness too…and am looking forward to all He has planned for me. Thanks for sharing your heart!

    That passage in Ephesians holds such promises…and verse 20, just wow. I know you’re here with me on this one, 🙂 but I have watched this verse happen before my eyes in the past six months. All I can do is praise Him, to the point of just standing in awe of all He is and has done and is going to do. Incredible. Love this post, friend, and so excited to keep dream-chasing with you! 🙂

    I love your words and the hope you bring through them. I am standing in agreement with you, in awe of how He makes ALL things beautiful, and offering thanks to Him with a full, redeemed, and mended heart! Blessings to you 🙂
