I don’t know how God does what he does, but the real question that often bothers me the most is why? Why would he take someone totally incapable, uneducated, a complete mess-up, and give them gifts and abilities? I’m learning that those gifts aren’t for one’s own fortune or fame, but to encourage others. I think it is in that moment that you are humbled and realize it is none of your doing, but it is a gracious God that has reached down and transformed your life. You truly know God has gifted you when you read a blog post that gets you fired up and touches your heart, only to realize your name is at the bottom of the article.
That is what happened this morning when I opened my email and began reading the following blog post from OakTara’s Christian Post. I wrote this almost two years ago. How timely, for I am going through another move. I have all the same feelings, uncertainties, and insecurities. But this time I do have a new weapon, peace. It has developed over time. It has been drawn from the well of waiting, refreshed by the water of God’s sovereignty, and altered a needy distrusting women into one who knows her God.
She knows more now than then. She knows HE loves her, cares for her, and works all things out for her good.
I’ve learned to trust God because he has never let go of my hand during the darkest of times where I could not see where I was going. He will do this for you too.
I know I didn’t really write this.
