the last thing we expect


quoting from jason upton’s blog:

…I believe one of the practical ways God reveals himself to us is by countering our expectations with the “last thing we expect.” Expectations are one of the ways we feel in control of what is going on around us, but also one of the great blinders over our eyes from seeing God. Sometimes it is a fearful experience when things don’t turn out the way we plan. Other times (like with Jacob) it is a great relief when things don’t turn out the way we plan. Either way, these are often the moments in life that we see the face of God most clearly.
