Last Sunday my pastor reminded me again that my past, your past and all our yesterdays are the building blocks of God's continual redemption of our lives. He said, "God is writing a story, a book, with your name on it." He quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson, "The years teach much that the day never knows." I love that quote. Events that I thought were random and seemingly not connected were. As I look back at the chapters in my life I see how those events and circumstances were part of the bigger picture. It is helpful to me, especially during difficult times, to know that God is working and using everything for my good. My pastor also said, "The more we see the dots connect in the past, the quicker we begin to see the dots and plots of our story in the present."
Blessings to you all, and may we begin to see and connect our dots!!
