No Longer Business As Usual ~Faith Like a Child

I am still digesting what went on during our 2012 Aglow U.S. National Conference, and the amazing things that God did in our midst.  In particular, I have been mulling over the phrase “It is no longer ‘business as usual’.”

I recently re-read the book Alice In Wonderland and was struck by a great quote that seemed to explain this to me in a fresh way.  Alice had just picked up a piece of cake, expecting to start growing bigger or smaller after eating it and then –  She was quite surprised to find that she remained the same size.  To be sure, this is what generally happens when one eats cake, but Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed quite dull and stupid for life to go on in the common way.”

Isn’t that the epitome of ‘faith like a child’?  When God does unexpected things in our life, we should continue to expect the unexpected – not expect things to go back as they were before!  No more ‘business as usual’!
