What a great reminder from God’s Word!! Have you ever sat down and thought about the events in your life? When our group was doing the study on the book of James, our homework was to make a timeline of our life. Even though I started on mine halfheartedly. I began asking myself, how did God work in this event? Was He showing me His faithfulness and How? Was this event God being intentional and why? He revealed to me what I had not understand at the time I was going through each event. If you have never done this please sit down and write your timeline. It is an eye-opening experience to how your life has played out so far and how God has used every detail of your life for His plans.
“Jesus replied, ‘ you don’t understand now what I am doing, but some day you will.” John 13:7
This verse is just one of many to show how the Bible, written many centuries ago is still living and relevant in our lives today. Right now we do not understand all that God is doing, but one day we will understand ALL that God has done. When Jesus told Simon Peter that he didn’t understand what he was doing, but one day he would. Jesus knew that the time had come for Him to die on the cross for all sinners. In the days ahead Peter would then understand what Jesus was doing that night for him and the other disciples. The same is true in our own lives. Tragedy strikes our lives and we ask why? Blessings happen and we rejoice. We live out our daily routine without a question. But one day God will show us how every single detail of our life was all in His plan.
Until we meet again, consider sitting down and writing out your own time line. If you would like to share, I would be honored to listen.
In His Love, Crisi
