God Has More Than the End in Mind
I took a leap of faith and fell flat on my face. I ache from the scrape. My pride is bruised because I patted myself on the back for following God’s will. I thought His will had an end result in mind. Today, I’m guessing His will isn’t so much about an end result as it is about the experience along the way: the surrendering and the opening hands and the calming peace I found when I submitted to His leading. A leap of faith doesn’t always mean a happy ending, because God has more than the end in mind.
“Everything God created looks forward to the future. That will be the time when his children appear in their full and final glory.” (Romans 8:19 NIRV)
