A Fragrant Aroma – A Good Book

One must be fully engaged in the story in order to actually get what the author wants you to get. When caught up in the middle of a chapter where struggle and conflict are playing out word by word, it is hard to put a good book down.

God is busy writing a book in each of our lives.  He knows how it will all play out, but we don’t.  We’re like the reader waiting for each day to reveal the next part of the story – our story.

This week I’ve been away with Tom on a business trip.  He’s been in meetings, and I’ve been working on my own book – a project which has taken far too long.  But in the middle of this seemingly normal week, God helped us resolve a long-standing conflict.

It wasn’t because we weren’t trying.  We have!

We’ve spent countless hours discussing and attempting to interpret the motives of our own hearts.  Page after page we turned only to find the conflict still there the next day –  still unresolved.

Until today. We have finally come to the last page of this trying chapter and can say with confidence, “It’s over!”

We cried.  We hugged.  And most sincerely we thanked God for His faithfulness to us in helping us change and grow for His glory!

Our story is becoming His story!  And we are GLAD!

The following is the song our heart is singing today in worship to God.  May you find God’s faithfulness unfolding in your heart as well!

    Happy for you both, to reach the end of a difficult chapter. I am finding that my ability to reflect back on those kind of “closed chapters” in my own life are often the ONE thing that helps me (us) keep on keeping on … when physical and/or mental pain seem overwhelming. Thanks for sharing your happiness!
