Your story is beautiful… too

1157586_orig

You started the journey together- Your Lord and you

The journey was supposed to be pretty simple- all the good boxes get checked

And you knew exactly what those boxes were!

If they’d told you there were going to be dark days- you wouldn’t have believed it

If they’d told you there were going to be cold nights- you wouldn’t have believed it

If they told you people who didn’t try so hard would get some of those things you had ever wanted… you definitely would not have believed it

But simple was not His plan, not for you

And the journey- it was not about arriving, but becoming

Somewhere along the way, you began to see…

You are not everything, but you’re something really special

You needed to let Him lead

You needed to let His power through

You needed to stop getting in your own self’s way

Though there were some lessons you wished you never had to learn…

But beautiful… that’s what your whole story has been. And is. And will be

Even in the moments you couldn’t see- it was beautiful

You see, there are many versions of the story of grace…

And every story of grace is beautiful

Everything is appropriate in its own time.

But though God has planted eternity in the hearts of men, even so, many cannot see the whole

scope of God’s work from beginning to end

Ecclesiates 3:11
