Chapter 5: The Rearview Mirror (pg 31)
Quote of the Day:
“I’ve learned that God sometimes allows us to find ourselves in a place where we want something so bad that we can’t see past it. Sometimes we can’t even see God because of it. When we want something that bad, it’s easy to mistake what we truly need for the thing we really want. When this sort of thing happens, and it seems to happen to everyone, I’ve found it’s because what God has for us is obscured from view, just around another bend in the road.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pgs. 35-36
Isaiah 55:8 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.”
Putting Love into Action:
Write down one thing that you’re currently struggling with – something you want so bad you can’t see past it. Tell God how you feel. Be honest and talk to Him like you would your best friend. Ask God to show you what you really need, no matter what. Ask Him to reveal His plan in His time. And then, trust. Trust that He has this thing and your heart in the palm of His hand.
Is there an experience in your rear view mirror where God used His love and circumstances to shape your life – even if it wasn’t what you expected or wanted?
