Life is God's Novel. Let Him Write It!
"Life is God's novel. Let Him write it." - a quote from Isaac Bashevis Singer. I would tweak it slightly to say that Life is God's love story. A love story about you. A love story about me. About His creation. Jesus, as the central character in every book, is the hero. He has slayed the dragon, conquered death, holds the keys to Death and Hades and lives forever more!
We know the ending, so why do we keep trying to rewrite certain chapters? I saw a post by an unknown author who said,
“I would have pulled Joseph out. Out of that pit. Out of that prison. Out of that pain. And I would have cheated nations out of the one God would use to deliver them from famine.
I would have pulled David out. Out of Saul’s spear-throwing presence. Out of the caves he hid away in. Out of the pain of rejection. And I would have cheated Israel out of a God-hearted king.
I would have pulled Esther out. Out of being snatched from her only family. Out of being placed in a position she never asked for. Out of the path of a vicious, power-hungry foe. And I would have cheated a people out of the woman God would use to save their very lives.
And I would have pulled Jesus off. Off of the cross. Off of the road that led to suffering and pain. Off of the path that would mean nakedness and beatings, nails and thorns. And I would have cheated the entire world out of a Savior. Out of salvation. Out of an eternity filled with no more suffering and no more pain."
This makes me think that we need to be still and let God work. We cannot see the future, but He can. We can pray and hope, knowing that God is working FOR us, not against us so that we will live happily ever after.
Have a blessed day!
