“Easy lives don’t make great stories.”
Is that GOOOOD or what? Just had to share it. Easy lives dont make great stories…heard that today in new Beth Moore study I’m doing. Her point was – we all have a legacy, a story, a NAME to leave behind. Its no accident that our lives are full of strife, pain, struggles…so were the folks in the bible – they were a mess. What a comfort eh? God has bigger plans for your life than you can even imagine…its just a free will thing. That is, its OUR decision to give it to Him to work/use/guide.
Loved it. She said, “just think, if you’re life were a bore, people would shut the book at chapter 3”. I never really thought of it that way. Would I be as available to those He puts in my life if I hadnt been humbled by struggles? Hmmm. THats one to think on. Love that thought though. I certainly want to know that bad stuff I go thru WILL indeed serves a purpose. Even if that purpose is to keep me grounded…humble…compassionate. (NOTE: I am certainly NOT all of things at all times…but its a nice goal eh?)
Oh well. THats all I have today. Great day. Great beginning to an 11 week adventure. Please say a prayer that God can use me and my words. Pray for us that we’ll find the time to do homework…and that we’ll remember that NOTHING I can do during my day is more important than seeing what He wants to tell me. He didnt give us the Bible to hear Himself speak…but rather, to accomplish something thru it IN each of us.
What study? The Patriarchs by Beth Moore.
