We stopped at a kooky tourist stop in the Keys on our first road trip together. We wandered aimlessly looking at sea shells and shot glasses lining the shelves. I pushed passed the crowd into the back room of the store, and I discovered a treasure.
In the corner behind all the bric a brac stood a bronze statue of a flying pig. I immediately wanted to take it home with me.
“Look at the pig,” I said to my man. He smiled from ear to ear.
For years, I’d wandered through stores alone. Table for one.
When are you getting married? my family would ask.
…when pigs fly.
But then one day, I volunteered to decorate a Christmas tree and buy some presents for a needy family as part of a Christmas outreach at the church, and this man showed up with a wickedly irresistible smile.
Suddenly, this little piggie’s wings started to flutter.
Anything is possible. Some days, it’s hard to believe that. Our hearts become dusty with doubt and disbelief. We stop praying because we’ve sat on the shelf for too long.
But my God conquered death itself. He can breathe new life into any situation.
Today might be the day, my friends. Get ready to fly.
Let’s Talk: Has God ever done the impossible in your life? I’d love to hear your flying pig story.
My desire is to lift up holy hands and “Pray Big.” Want to join me? I’ve created a private “Pray Big” Facebook group for like-minded sisters to share their stories and surrender each one to our mountain-moving God in prayer. Let’s cry out to God together.
I am sharing “When Pigs Fly” and joining like-minded sisters at Give Me Grace, Weekend Whispers, Spiritual Sundays, Faith-Filled Friday, Blessing Counters, Live Free Thursday, Grace Moments, Tell His Story, Coffee for Your Heart, Three-Word Wednesday, Purposeful Faith’s RaRaLinkup, Rich-Faith Rising, Testimony Tuesday, and Sharing His Beauty.
