Life is a journey. The story takes unexpected turns and we find ourselves in places we never thought we’d be. That’s the beauty of life. Uncertainty, although scary, is what gives life meaning.
Think about it. Love comes unexpectedly. Children sometimes come unexpectedly. Job promotions, raises, friends and even death. All the things that make life great come as a plot twist in our story. We don’t know what lies ahead. That’s the way an author likes it. That’s what makes for a good story.
Life is an amazing adventure. We will have good times and bad, but our attitude makes the difference in how we come through those things. A good attitude even in the worst of situations will take you a long way. Will it be easy? No. It’s not supposed to be easy. We wouldn’t need God if it was. We have to be totally dependent on him. He’s the author. When you read a book, you trust that the author is going to weave a good story that will leave you longing for more. Trust him. Surrender everything to him and know that no matter what you’re going through, he has put together an amazing story that is all your own. No one else has your story.
Allow yourself to experience life. Don’t close yourself off. Don’t put up walls. We tend to do that when we’ve been hurt or when we’ve experienced great loss. When you hide yourself away, you are telling the Author that the story he wrote for you, isn’t good enough. Turn the page. Know that he has your best interest at heart and that he will come through for you.
He won’t leave you hanging. He longs for you to know him. Spend time with him and watch how your story unfolds. He has so much in store for you. It’s not the end of the story. Just wait and see. You’ll be amazed.
