When I put it on, I was pleasantly surprised. I was not expecting these two items to compliment each other so perfectly.

The Bible continues to amaze me. The more I study it, the more I learn and the more hidden gems I find. Like this verse from Zephaniah. I mean, have you even heard of the book Zephaniah? Do you know where to find it in the Bible? I didn't. But, this verse was part of my advent study last week.
Then there is the Christmas story and it's cast of characters. The unlikely choice of Mary as the mother of Jesus. The unexpected response of Joseph. The unconventional way Jesus came into the world. To save it.
Driving home from church Sunday, I heard this song, Such a Strange Way to Save the World. Strange, yes. Unexpected, uh-huh. Unconventional, you bet. Yet, the cast of characters were ready. They were open to the message of God and responded to His call.
I'd like to think that I am too. That I wouldn't shy away from a person or situation that seemed to be unlikely to be used by God. But, that I would be ready and open to accept that God moves and speaks, and it may not be exactly how or when we are expecting it.
I'm watching and listening. Are you?
