Put the pencil down and let God write the story.
He knows the best plot and better yet, He knows the best conclusion for each of us. Painful at times? Yes. Incomprehensible at the present? Most likely. Tremendously rewarding in the end? Absolutely.
Set your gaze unwavering on “…Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” He alone is worthy to write the script of life.
The free extra shot of espresso. A new friend. The promotion at work. An unexpected baby. More time spoiling the grandkids. Spontaneous date night.
Are these happy occurrences mere luck? Good karma? Kiss of fate?
Or could it be that each serendipity was uniquely designed by a God who delights in His children? Savor the thought. And next time you encounter a serendipity by design, bask in the unfailing love of our Mighty Warrior.
“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)
