“We are a Divine work of art, something that God is making and therefore something with which He will not be satisfied until it has a certain character.” C.S. Lewis – The Problem of Pain
In the pain and joy of my life…especially the pain of my life. I find that the question “What’s God doing with my life?” always floats into my head. I have a Father in heaven that is involved and concerned with me. What is He doing? Has he forgot about me? I don’t think we have concrete answer to these questions. Job and Isaiah can attest to that. But God is doing something. I am convinced that He is constantly working in our lives. He is orchestrating and directing the world so two things will always happen:
He will form me into the image of Christ
The question I now ask myself often sounds something like, “God how will you be glorified in my life, in my situation?” “Will it be by a miraculous change or healing?” Or “Will it be because your grace follows through me in such a way that people see strength and wisdom that’s has to come from you?” I am convinced that somehow God will be glorified.
