On Vacuuming, Basketballs, and the Collisions of Life~

Vacuuming the living room, 
I accidentally bumped the basket housing all of my husband's sports equipment. 
As soon as the basket and the vacuum collided, 
a basketball came rolling out of the basket and across the floor. 
And right then and there, 
God spoke a powerful truth to my heart.

As we go through life, 

no doubt, 
you and I are going to experience the jar of life. 
It's inevitable, isn't it? 

And yet, 
these very collisions, 
these very unexpected "meetings" that often leave us feeling knocked around and misplaced, 
are the very things God can use to reposition us and "set us free" to fulfill our God-given destiny.

A basketball wasn't created to sit in a basket. It was created to roll, bounce, and move. 

You and I weren't created to sit in the basket of life, either. 
God created us to LIVE, and move, and experience life in and though Him.
(For in him we live, and move, and have our being. Acts 17:28)

Today, look at your life from a spiritual vantage point.

Stop and survey your life from a place (possibly on your knees in prayer) 
that allows you to see the overall picture. 
Could it be 
the very thing, 
the very one,
the very circumstance that is threatening to rock your world, 
is the very thing Jesus can and will use 
to reposition you, 
to place you where you need to be, 
to set you free?

Just a thought that came to me while vacuuming . . . ~♥
