Beautiful Picture

Doing the will of God leaves little time for disputing about HIS plans for our lives!

Honestly, have you ever wondered about the script God has written for your life?  I’m sure most of us have at one point or another in our lives.  Hmmm!  Weren’t you suppose to be a pro athlete or the next Miss Universe?  Didn’t God mean for all our dreams to come true?

So why did we get the script that says, ” You’re going to argue with your neighbor, struggle to feel accepted, then slip up in a pool of water and break your arm”?  Surely this script is wrong.

Try this little experiment.  Get out a beautiful picture; something from a magazine, perhaps.  Take a large piece of paper and cover the whole picture.  Carefully cut a hole half the size of a pencil eraser in the paper.  Slide the hole around on top of the picture.  What do you see?  Not much?  That’s all we are going to see of God’s plan too.  Maybe today’s script isn’t much fun, but God sees the big picture.  You know–the beautiful one under the paper.

Thou dost show me the path of life;  in thy presence there is fullness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.
Psalm 16:11 RSV
