Am I a wee little part in God’s big story, or is he a wee little part in my story? There’s really no need to answer this verbally, for my life reveals the answer clearly to a watching world! “Oh, thou who has the hearts of all men in thine hand, form my heart according to the Word, according to the image of thy Son.” (The Valley of Vision, “Christ the Word”) Amen!
Perhaps one of the worst of all lots in life is found in Ecclesiastes 6:3, one whose “soul is not satisfied with life’s good things. “ Verse 9 says, “Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the appetite.” My translation? Be content with what you have and stop chasing after what you don’t have. Verse 12 asks, “For who knows what is good for man while he lives a few days of his vain life, which passes like a shadow?” The only conceivable answer? God!! And if he knows and we trust him, then won’t we lean in and be satisfied and stop wandering? The Israelites wandered for 40 years because they did not trust.
Am I trusting or too busy wandering? Will I embrace my little part in his big story and be satisfied? Or will I continue wandering, trying to squeeze a little bit of him into my story? I encourage you to ask yourself if you are satisfied or wandering too? How are you including God into your story?
