Life is different for everyone. Lately, mine is coming together in ways I never really even considered. There have been so many opportunities and changes between where I was and where I am now, and I am sure there will be more to come. There are things I don’t understand and things that are starting to make sense. I have probably known this all along but am beginning to acknowledge that we all have our own stories. My life is a story and each page was needed to get me to the page I am on now.
Cliché? Maybe. True? Yes!
Unfinished- well, that’s what I am. As hard as it is to accept, I cannot see the end product and that is something I must patiently wait to see. Trying to trust the Author and Creator of my life to continue to write my story. Trying to trust that it will all make sense when the story comes to a close. Two things come to mind when I try to accept that I am unfinished:
“There is hope for me yet, because God won’t forget all the plans He’s made for me. I have to wait and see, He’s not finished with me yet.” –Brandon Heath
“There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.” –Philippians 1:6 (The Message)
I had never read that verse in The Message version until now and how promising does that sound?! Not only will He finish our story, He will bring our story to a “flourishing finish!”
