God shows up in the most ironic/ perfect times

yesterday:
-i woke up late
-i solved two work chaos problems before coffee đŸ˜‰
-it made us late for marta, which made us late for class
-i was referred to as the “white devil” by a homeless man
-i won the Guinness World Record for longest migraine
-i almost threw up twice from the pain associated with said migraine
-i sat through 7.5 hours of lecture with said migraine
-i forgot my purse
-i forgot my phone
-i almost lost perspective and got mad about all that stuff and about walking in the pelting rain

but none of that matters because:
God healed my back.
Done.
Finito.
HEALED.

I have more to say about all this later, but just to say God is funny and ironic and he loves us so. and it’s amazing. HE’s amazing. And He is WILLING to get down in the depths of our pain and crap and even disbelief and heal us anyway–not because of us or in spite of us, but because He is Who He says HE IS.

Luke 5:12-13
12 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
13Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.
