Today I have a devotion running at P31. Thanks to all of you who visit after reading about sunshine and shade. What are you in right now? Sunshine? Shade? What are you looking longingly at? Are you missing what God has for you right where you are?
I will post this quote from writer Ann Voskamp, who is going to be stopping by to visit soon here at my blog to talk about her most excellent book One Thousand Gifts. "There's a reason I'm not writing the story and God is. He knows how it all works out, where it all leads, what it all means. I don't."
It's like Lisa said yesterday-- it's the not knowing that causes us to trust God for who He is and not what He does. That's when our faith grows.
May you feel shade today if you're limping along in the heat. And may you feel sunshine warm your face if you've been shivering in the cold. And in those moments of grace, may you draw the strength to keep going.
