Every once in a while, God surprises you. Just for fun. He paints an amazing sunset. He orchestrates a phone call from a friend (at the same time you are thinking about them). He puts a song…or a Bible verse…or a poem…or a quote in front of your eyes and ears at just the right moment.
Last week, this happened for me in a God-has-been-planning-this-for-a-long-time sort of way.

The Back Story
It was October of 2013. I was driving up to Canada to speak at a conference for teachers and administrators from Christian schools throughout the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia.
As the miles ticked away, I became overwhelmed with the sense that God was planning an Ephesians 3:20 moment. (You know…“immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine.”) I called Kari, shared my excitement, asked for prayer, and drove the rest of the way with a smile on my face.
