That’s why, when we get frustrated and think that God isn’t answering, doesn’t have a plan, or isn’t even there, we’re wrong.
From the beginning to the end. The Alpha and the Omega. He is weaving a beautiful tapestry and our lives are but mere threads in that weaving.
And, though we can’t see it, it’s beautiful.
We see the beauty he created in the earth in seven days or seven bazillion years. But he created it. While there is ugly here, in his time, it will be beautiful.
When Esther feared going to the king Mordecai said to her “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)
Galatians 4:4-5 says: But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.
It’s all about his time. Not ours. And that’s beautiful.
I believe this.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
