So, I got to thinking....if fiction is a reflection of reality, then my life mirrors my character, and as the writer, I am a reflection of the master Author. As the Lord crafts my story, I am wholly dependent on Him. I cannot get out of the corner unless He sees fit to pen the scene that way.
"Faith in God includes faith in His timing."
Over the past couple of years, I've become convinced that the Lord loves to write Himself into a corner that only He, in His sovereignty, can fix. His fingerprints are all over my life. It fascinates and humbles me that I can take no credit for my accomplishments or my path.
Currently, I'm stuck in a corner beneath a sign flashing "WAIT." This character is not patient, but I also realize that I'm not the author of my story. Thankfully, the One who created all, sees all, and controls all is at the desk completely aware of the big dreams I imagine, the hope I cling to, and the adventures that will come my way. He can craft the perfect scene better than anything I could initiate from my limited viewpoint.
Until the Lord crafts the next scene, I am writing, waiting, wondering, developing a greater trust in Him.
