Expecting the unexpected. If you’re a faithful reader of this blog, I apologize. Lately I’ve been disregarding posting. Call it laziness, slothfullness, busyness – whatever. By quickly scrolling down, you can see that my last post was on Feb 7, 2011. Like the way the New York Mets have started this baseball season, that is completely unacceptable. By reading this post – you may be thinking to yourself – wow… a post on Matt Riggins’ blog – this is unexpected.
If that’s what you’re thinking – well then you know how I felt today when I got an email, or should I say a kick in the butt! A good kick! An amazing kick!
Last night I was telling my wife how lately I have felt really “uneasy” and “tense” about certain things. It’s hard to explain – but right now there are a combination of things in my life that are basically “up in the air” and I am struggling with making decisions. Some are big, some are small, some are probably meaningless. Ultimately though – it is beginning to weigh on me.
This morning I was determined to start off on the right foot. I was up early – I read my devotions … which I’m sad to say is not a daily habit. It should be though because I believe it has changed my outlook for this day. I arrived to work and unlike any other morning recently, I had this amazing peace inside. It was incredible. It was almost as if someone was praying for me at that very moment. That’s what it felt like.
Then around lunch time I received the email I mentioned above. It’s not huge, or life-changing, but it’s something I never expected. Something I honestly gave up on about 3 or 4 months ago. It brought a huge smile to my face and a jump to my step.
What was it? Well… I cannot tell you right now. But you will find out very soon. I promise!
Expect the unexpected!
