God As Author

If you are a blogger, then writing is not a new concept for you. Have you ever thought of God as an author?

writing Pictures, Images and PhotosGod is the author of all words. He not only wrote the Bible, through man's hands, but He is writing a story using each one of us. Our very lives are stories being written by the God of the Universe.

If your life is in a good place right now, this concept will seem natural to you. But what happens when things go wrong in your life? Is God still the one writing your storyline? Absolutely!

Even when we fall into sin ourselves, God is there to use that "line" or event in His ultimate plan for our life. That's why He wrote:

Romans 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

There are times, especially when others betray us, that we think we are all alone, and that our lives are a mistake. Be encouraged that every word of your life has been planned out by God. Even if you don't feel His presence, He is always there. So no matter what life has dealt you, press on toward finishing the race. Just as Paul wrote:

"Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13-14 (NRSV)

I love that he is a redeemer, taking what was for bad, and redeeming it for good.

God loves you. :-)

Our Author God has guided and helped me with my writing -- and my life! -- time and again. By the way, that passage from Philippians is one of my favorites. Blessings to you!
