Hello Ladies, I cannot tell you how encouraged I was by our Thursday meeting–I was impressed by your puncuality, your preparation (every one of you brought me exact change for your books !), and most of all by your sincere desire to study God’s word with other like-minded women. How amazing is our God that He knew we would be gathering “for such a time as this.”
And so for our first blog discussion, I wanted to share a principle that jumped out to me in the very first lesson. HINT: if you haven’t started your lesson yet, dive into it ! Beth writes, “When we trust our lives to the unseen ever-present God, He will write our lives into His story and every last one of [our stories] will turn out to be a great read. With a grand ending.”
I know for myself I have struggled to believe and trust that portions of my story will be used for His glory and purpose. I sometimes feel as though I want to tell only parts of the story–or only parts to certain people. But as Beth writes, if we let God, He allows our stories to be “a great read with a grand ending”. Let’s take great hope in this truth not just to “wait and see” but as Beth says,”Live and see.”
How about you ? Do you fully embrace the story of your life, even the unfinished chapters ? In what practical ways this week can you begin to embrace your story more fully ?
