ways of God

I do not understand the ways of God, but I understand this:

He continues to create, orchestrate, and demonstrate His faithfulness in the lives of His children.

My children are not of my own flesh and blood. I do not have any stories to tell about their growth in my womb, the experience of labor, and the subsequent delivery. I do not have much to say about any of that, but boy, I have a lot to say about their “births” into my life.

And this, you see, THIS is why I fully embrace and recognize the incredible scripting of God’s story in my life, and in yours.

I cannot fathom a life without the children that God has given me. I would not trade it for anything in this world.

I would not even trade it for the gift of pregnancy.

And this, you see, THIS is why I fully embrace and recognize the incredible scripting of God’s story in my life, and in yours.

The next time you wonder where God is in your life, I urge you to take a look around.

He is in the midst of the people He has chosen for your lives.

He is in the middle of your heartbreak, your successes, and your declarations of freedom.

He is in the valleys, on the mountaintops, and somewhere in between.

He is backwards, forwards, and in the present.

He is right where you are.

My children…my ornery, spirited, challenging, yet beautiful children are exactly what and who they are meant to be in my life. Praise God for that!

And this, you see, THIS is why I fully embrace and recognize the incredible scripting of God’s story in my life, and in yours.

I do not understand the ways of God, but I understand this:

He continues to create, orchestrate, and demonstrate His faithfulness in the lives of His children.

He is backwards, forwards, and in the present.

He is right where you are.

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! -Romans 11:33
