Isn’t it Ironic?

I had some exciting moments last week and, as usual, I talked to God as I reflected on them. Some of them made me chuckle; some of them surprised me and others were long awaited promises. Nevertheless, I started off my conversation with God with the words, “Isn’t it ironic . . .” Before I could finish, he stopped me mid-sentence.

His reply was simple but profound:

It isn’t ironic; I’ve always envisioned these things for you. The irony comes in your taking this long to finally see what I see.

No one can hug you and slap you in the face simultaneously like God; no one. Now you meditate on that and see where it applies in your life.
