A Little Pencil in the Hand of a Writing God

“I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world” (Mother Teresa).

If you don’t like how your story is going, it’s good to remember that you are not the author of your story. God is. Also, if you keep trying to snatch the pencil out of God’s hand, you’ll miss some of what God is writing.

I think you and I get into trouble when we see ourselves as the star of the story. We lose sight of the big picture of the grand narrative God is telling. Jesus is the central focus and we get to be a part of what He is doing in the world. When we see our story in the context of the Bigger Story, we can be less anxious about where we are and where we think we should be.

Trust the Author and let Him tell your story. You will not be disappointed.
