In a Greater Way

“Some of the things you’ve lost in your life, God is not going to bring back in the exact same way. He is going to restore them to you in a greater way than you’ve ever seen them before.”

-Steven Furtick

Life

Life is like driving down the road.

Sometimes, the path is straight. Sometimes, there are twists and turns.

Sometimes, you love the ride. Sometimes, you hate it.

Sometimes, you hit the gas and go full speed. Sometimes, you have to hit the brakes and stop.

Sometimes, you know the way. Sometimes, you need directions.

Sometimes, you can’t wait for the trip. Sometimes, you dread it.

Sometimes, it’s an easy trek. Sometimes, it’s a nightmarish commute.

Sometimes, you can make the pass and take the lead. Sometimes, you’re in a no passing zone and you have to follow.

Sometimes, the car drives like a dream. Sometimes, it breaks down.

Sometimes, you’re on cruise control. Sometimes, you’re white knuckling it just trying to stay on the road.

Sometimes, the destination is known. Sometimes, it isn’t.

No matter what, it’s a wild ride, this thing called life. Enjoy the journey.

Good Despite the Not so Good

2020 has been quite a year, hasn’t it? Lots of things to put in the negative column for many folks, and I’d be lying if I said this didn’t include me.

But, isn’t it interesting…good has still been there to be found, through even the most difficult year of pretty much everyone’s life on this Earth.

God is good. He has been there, even during times when it may not have seemed like it. I see it now, as I start to reflect on the events of this past year. It’s taken some time for me to get it into view, but He’s starting to reveal His goodness to me from this chapter of life more clearly. And yes, it’s still 2020.

I read this Bible verse the other night and it sums up what I’m talking about, here. Praise God for always being faithful, no matter what. He is always enough!

Lamentations 19:24
I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.
