Five Minute Friday: God Writes My STORY

STORY

start . . . 

I saw the above image & quote today on Facebook and it really struck me.  We all have our story, that God is still writing.  So often we wonder why, and though we may never know, often we can see the weaving in and out of our lives, the experiences and people that make-up the chapters of our lives.  I think of friends that were at time my forever best friends, always thinking she would be, but God allows separations, sometimes hurts or moves, and she is out of my life.  I see how God allowed it to happen now, to prevent further hurts, and put others into my life, that I need for the way they can minister to me, and I to them.

If you are on Facebook, have you found out in amazement, people who know each other that you never imagined that they knew each other?   I think of how I found out my pastor’s wife knows a family that helped me through college days and how my sister-in-law grew up with my pastor.  Our lives intertwine so much and it’s all for a purpose that God is putting our story together.  It’s the same with things we go through.  Of course, I wish I could change that my daughter was not born with heart defects or that we did not have to bury two children, but yet, I see with this part of my story, God has allowed opportunities to share with others, to have compassion and understanding that is hard for many to comprehend.

As we let God write our story, we can learn the real meaning of:

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
Romans 12:15

  1. Wow, those are some hard things to go through but it’s such a blessing that you see that God’s glory is in those times, as heartbreaking as losing your children must be and yes, your story is unique and I’m sure healing to people who are broken by their own stories. Such a beautiful peace in knowing that all of our stories are being authored by Him. I was your neighbor over at Lisa Jo’s and I’m so glad I got to stop by. Blessings to you.

  2. i’ve also heard our lives compared to a tapestry – so confusing and often unattractive even though individual threads may be beautiful from our limited, underside perspective… but amazingly beautiful when viewed from above, as a whole…

    was just down the road from you at fmf and your title caught my eye. thanks for sharing your story, even though there is hurt and pain.
