God has this incredible way of giving us just what we need when we need it. And usually we don't even see it coming.
A few days ago a friend made a comment in the language that I fondly call 'churchese': that special vocabulary that people hear or pick up in church, and over time it becomes part of our vocabulary. Church people know exactly what we mean, but lots of other people don't have a clue.
Anyway, said friend made the comment, and I asked 'What do you mean by that?'
An explanation was forthcoming, along with a disclaimer that quite possibly the term hadn't been fully understood. We made plans to talk at some future point when schedules allowed.
Today my friend read something and sent it to me for review, along with a suggestion that 'maybe this is what you had in mind'.
It was. God knew that my friend was ready to go deeper, and so He provided the shovel.
We're still going to have lunch.
