There have been times I have wondered how it would all play out. How would the idiosyncrasies and mishaps of my life all fit together. Sometimes I think this is beyond me. Sometimes it’s just too much for my finite mind to comprehend, but I still try and get tired doing so.
Tonight I have a different reality. While my life may seem incongruent and off balance or disheveled, but it’s not. In some way that I cannot explain, God is making all things new. I don’t always grasp this because it’s bigger than me. In His hands, my life is made more beautiful.
I may be leery, but I believe that God knows full well what He’s doing. My choice is to trust Him. What it’s beginning to look like is something I can enjoy. Part and parcel of the promise given. It seems to be coming to fruition. And even if it doesn’t turn out how I think it should, God is still good, and the promise still gives me hope.
Today I can share with you this truth – nothing is lost in the kingdom of God. Nothing goes wasted. The things we think can’t or won’t go together become a beautiful tapestry. We don’t always see the hidden treasure of our very own lives because we live in the moment in the ebb and flow. God sees it all and weaves together a masterpiece; after all He created us for good works. Every thread of your life is part of the making of His good works for you. This I believe.
The reality is that the totality of my experience doesn’t define my whole life, and in some magnificent way, God crafts my life and experiences in ways that allow me to grow and be in ways I cannot imagine. There is no messiness He can’t handle. There is no tattered cord He cannot restore. There is no wound too deep that He cannot heal. The frayed edges of our lives become a work of art in the hands of God. Yes! This I believe.
Tonight I have a different reality. God is at work, and I’ll keep believing Him. His ways are not my ways. What He has done cannot be undone. This is a relief. There is hope always.
So only this remains: Do you trust God to bring beauty from the ashes and discord of your life? Now, it’s your turn. Believe in faith.
Now, go live by just…being! Let that being become what you do. It was always who you were.
