He's "Up There"

So, God is real, y'all.  Let that sink in a minute.  There is a living, breathing, all-powerful, all-loving holy God and he is REAL.  I've believed it for a long time.  I've pledged my life by it.  And then sometimes, despite knowledge of that fact, I drift out of my passion for Him and fall back in love with the world.  I stick God in the closet and relegate Him to "up there."  Maybe looking down on us fondly like a loved one that has passed away, perhaps occasionally angrily.  But God doesn't like to be contained in His heavenly dwelling--He prefers to be all up in our business here on earth, stirring things up. 
Today I had a conversation with my sister-in-law.  God is doing AMAZING things in her life and has infused her with a spirit of truth, do yourself a favor and check out her blog.  Today.  
The thing is, in spite of the minuscule portion of time and energy I give to Him, God decided to let me share a portion of His blessing with her.  Lately, He's been telling me to pray for her.  I didn't have a huge revelation, or specific details on what to pray about, and I wasn't even sure why.  In fact, sometimes I felt like it was something I'd just made up in my head and decided was from God.  But today I talked with her and she confirmed that He's been doing something great, and it's been my privilege to be a tiny part of it.  
So, in conclusion--I'm not feeling eloquent and I don't really have the time to be, but--God is real.  He's doing things, and He wants to do things in YOUR life.  Hit your knees today, listen for Him, and check out Redeemingthedays.  You're welcome.
