“God, we will do anything. Anything.”
That had been their prayer. "I looked into God’s eyes and asked Him, What do you want me to do while I’m here?" Jennie recalls. "We weren’t as scared as we should have been. We were just so tired of normal. We loved our simple, sane life, yet we wanted the kind of life you only find if you lose normal, simple, and sane.
"God was ready to have his way with us. Actually, he sits around waiting for that sort of thing. 'For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him' (2 Chronicles 16:9). God is ready to have his way with you, too. I hope you’ll invite God into your “anything.”
