As I mature in Christ it continually fascinates and challenges me how God's ways are not my ways, nor His thoughts my thoughts. And truly, that is probably a good thing for everyone concerned. He tells us to love our enemies, to rejoice in persecution, to pray for those who come against us. Even as I strive to take on the mind-of-Christ, God often proves He is the one in charge by answering my prayers in a manner I would not have anticipated or predicted.
