No Way! What??

Some of the best things in life come to us as a shocking surprise.

I remember seeing Carrie Underwood receive one of her first music awards in Country.  As she received her award, you could tell she realized how personally amazing this was for her.  She told everyone that just a couple years before, she was at home watching these awards from her living room and now here she was on stage receiving one herself!  A real 'pinch me' moment!  I bet if anyone told her back then that she would be on that stage in just 24 months receiving an award herself, she would have laughed and shook her head.  "Yeah, right!" 

Or the story of the man who went from homeless to a recognized musician.  How amazed he probably was with how life had turned around for him.  I wonder if he'd believe it if someone told him back on the streets that his name would become known to many and his talent recognized?

Or Abraham and Sarah.  The shocking conception in their old age of their promised and long awaited son. 

But, that is just how our God rolls.  He keeps His promises and fulfills them in ways that blow our minds.  It's always above and beyond what we would expect.  And, always hard for us to wrap our heads around and believe-- even if we were told.
