We sat down this evening to watch the old 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' with the kids, and I loved the dance and song when Charlie found the 'ticket'!
"I never thought my life could be anything but catastrophe
I begin to see a bit of good luck for me...
Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden twinkle in my eye
I never had a chance to shine never a happy song to sing,
But suddenly half the world is mine what an amazing thing
I've got a golden ticket.
It's ours Charlie!
I've got a golden sun up in the sky."
It is beyond beautiful to think of the 'golden ticket' God has placed in our hands!
No abuse, addictions, no eating disorders and pulls of depression
are anything once we use the power of our God, gifted to us to break them permanently.
When I think of the ticket we have and the doors it opens for God's name to become known - I want to dance and sing and twirl in stunned awestruckness that He is
Then when I am overcome with emotion, I fall to the ground in honor and wrestle out any struggles that I know life will continue to pass before me.
He is worth every ounce of our lives, spent trying to grasp those little mysteries
that are too profound for human wisdom to comprehend alone.
Charlie wanted it so bad, that he spent his last little coin - and all of his faith - hoping for it. God will never let us down with desire for Him. If you don't desire Him like you
think you could - ask Him and watch Hiim build a passion within you that is beyond the ups and downs of this life.
WE HAVE A GOLDEN TICKET!!!!! Ask God how He would like you to spread the news.
