We have to let ourselves be open to what comes next. Learning to be comfortable with NOT knowing all the details of what comes next takes practice and lots of faith! But it’s an incredible (Radical!) way to live!
“Just because things don’t work out the way you planned them doesn’t mean they didn’t work out well.”
from Normal is Just a Setting on the Dryer
We each have a picture in our head of how we want our lives to work out. I know I did. And let me tell you my picture did not include divorce. But a divorce happened anyway, and I went through the whole ordeal doing more than my share of kicking, screaming and sobbing. But after I calmed down a little and after facing the fact that I really was divorced, I started trying to figure out “what next? What now? What do I do now?” It’s those hard questions that have the seeds of transformation in them. Those questions can turn your life around. Those questions can set you on a whole new journey to an unbelievably wonderful life. At times scary, but invigorating just the same! Don’t be afraid to ask those questions, because if recognize the potential in them, the answers might astound you!
“And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.”
