Jesus, Meryl Streep, and The Oscars

Can you imagine being called to deliver to a pizza party, only to find out Ellen plans to drag you into the crowd with the likes of Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and more?

The guy delivering the pizzas was not an actor, but actually a real delivery man whose life will never be the same. I’m impressed at how calm and collected he remained. I probably couldn’t have done the same.

Seeing him get to do something he never expected to happen reminded me of how amazing God’s love is.

He wants to lavish us with surprises!

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. – 1 Corinthians 2:9

I’ve talked to so many who seem to think God is this distant God ready to punish us around every corner, just waiting for our next screw up. Oh, friends, that’s not the God I know.

He wants to give us the desires of our hearts. (Psalm 37:4)

He loves us with an everlasting love. (Jeremiah 31:3)

If He’s waiting to surprise us, shouldn’t we be waiting, too? 

I’m excited to see what He does for you when you least expect it. You never know. He could toss you in front of some of the greatest actors in the world because of something as simple as a pizza.

Look for his blessings today. They’re all around you.

    I took away from the Oscars the overwhelming belief that ALL of our dreams are possible! If you follow Jesus, then you know that …or should… but for those lost in the darkness we need to constantly remind them that the Lord knows our dreams and desires and wants to fulfill them for us. His “plan” is to give us life and life more abundantly. Many of the winners expressed how we should never give us on our dreams.
