How God Wrote Our Story
“The months that followed brought many opportunities to trust God in a deeper way than ever before as we tried to sort out our ideas regarding relationships. Our one-on-one communication was minimal and we both developed a number of misconceptions. Through the journey of the fall and winter, I learned much about real faith, acceptance-with-joy of whatever the will of God ordains, and embracing every gift He gives- including loss.”
When we are reading love stories, we need to focus on what God has done—not on what the people did—because our very best “rightness” is still worth nothing in the Kingdom of God. It doesn’t guarantee us a single thing. Love stories are about how God moved, even when people didn’t have any idea that He was there.
