What if that bread I can’t have is so that I know that God is the Bread of Life?
What if that betrayal is so that I may find Him faithful?
What if that terrible day is so that I might find Christ waiting at the end?
What if that burning, unforgettable mistake is so that I might comprehend Christ’s unmistakeable perfection?
What if that pervasive stubborn streak is so that I might never back down in stubbornness for Christ?
What if that inopportune accident is so I could have the opportunity to encourage the heart of a hurting girl?
What if that aching tooth is so that I could share the Gospel with an aching soul in the waiting room?
What if the loneliness that swathes my heart is so that I might grasp that I am never alone?
What if that tempting thought that worms into my brain is so that I can cry out to God with every breath in my being?
What if those cutting words that stabbed my heart are so that I can someday comfort another whose heart has been stabbed?
What if the fears that paralyze my soul are so that I may realize that they are a symptom of the love that does not dwell in my heart?
What if everything in my life is directed by a sovereign God so that everything I am may glorify Him?
