A Great God-Story

Feb 19th 2010

A few weeks ago in the course of talking about the stories that God is writing in our lives, I made the comment that we don’t know the whole story.  We don’t know the trustwhole story that God is writing in the life of the person sitting next to us.  We don’t even know the whole story that God is writing in our lives.  Because He isn’t through yet.

I’ve had so many opportunities in the last few weeks to talk to people who were encouraged by those words — God isn’t through writing your story.  Jesus hasn’t put down the pen.

I think when we are in those wilderness times, one of the great issues is trust isn’t it?  That’s one of the values of telling each other our God-stories, it builds trust which gives hope.

Anyway I love it when I come across great God-stories (great God and great stories) that are somehow connected to Calvary.  Lois Abdelmalek shared one with me this week.  It’s about her grandparents who were followers of Christ in Egypt.  They started churches, even an underground seminary.  Very cool stuff.  Here is a story from their life.  Let it encourage you — as you walk through your wilderness time.  Sometimes God leads us into an impossible wilderness to show us the tenderness of his care.  You can trust Him.
