Today’s Prompt: BEYOND
My son experienced his first ever Root Beer float yesterday. It went beyond his expectations. As you can tell from the slurping noises he was on a mission to suck every bit of tasty goodness out of that glass.
I was thinking this morning when I saw the word beyond how God’s goodness is like a never-ending Root Beer float. “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” Each time I’ve made the choice to trust Him and walk the road He calls me down, He’s taken me on journeys far beyond anything I could have conjured up in my own little mind and world.
That certainly doesn’t mean that every road has been easy. But in the process of trusting Him, God has opened my eyes to something more. There is something beyond roads that are easy or hard It’s peace beyond understanding. It’s joy beyond understanding. It’s love beyond understanding.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
