Have you learned yet that God has a PLAN?! That no matter what we do or how we react, HE will see to it that HIS PLAN is accomplished. But HE has given us the freedom to choose whether or not we want to be a part of it or not; whether we want to play a role in HIS "big story."
My husband is reading a book that gave this analogy. Like an extra in a film can overreact with excitement and tell everyone to watch this film about them, where no more than the back of their head is actually seen, WE DO THE SAME THING by thinking this whole life is about us when we are simply an extra in Gods film, we're simply a tool to be used or to just stand in the background. It's HIS STORY.
I've had some great loss this summer, physical & emotional pain, and doubt & fear that took hold of me faster than I knew it could. I hit rock bottom wondering if God really cared about what I was going through. I'm glad I asked these questions. I'm glad I had the pain I had. I'm glad I doubted and got angry and let it all out.
Because otherwise God wouldn't have showed up for me the way He did. HE wouldn't have jumped the leaps and bounds that He did to show me HOW MUCH HE REALLY LOVES ME and HOW OKAY I REALLY AM GOING TO BE.
If we choose to be in HIS STORY, we WILL BE OKAY. The bible promises we WILL BE MORE THAN OKAY. HIS PLAN is so much bigger than we know and HIS love is so much stronger and greater.
This summer has changed my life and this ministry. God has a GREAT PLAN for this ministry and I am excited for what is ahead this year. I am tuned in and changing me as I move to stay in HIS PLAN and HE will do the impossible. HE will change lives. HE will show up when we need Him most and when we least expect it. This is HIS STORY.
