It’s beyond me

What eye did not see, and ear did not hear, and what did not come up in the human heart – what God did prepare for those loving Him. 1 Cor. 2:9

Nobody expected Jesus’ story to play out the way it did. So many were unwilling to embrace the unexpected and inconceivable and insisted on sticking to the story they thought God would tell instead of the one He actually was telling. It’s possible that God may invite us into stories we could never have imagined. Entering those stories will always lead us to higher, wider, longer, and deeper experiences in God’s love for us.

Lord, help me to accept wonder as a viable option to my explanations and expectations. Take me beyond what I think I know and understand right now.
