Map of Grace

January 25, 2012

On days like this, when I can’t focus, can’t pray, can’t listen, can’t read, can’t write, and can’t fold another piece of laundry—I go back to this tree. Somehow, it reminds me of a loving God who works in all things for His glory. It’s a map. My map. It’s my weird, crooked, sometimes overlapping, often dysfunctional, precious family tree. When I connect the dots of my lineage, I’m forced to see God’s hand in all things. Then I remember “that in all things God works for the good of those who love him” (Romans 8:28). His plan is good, friends. Whatever His plan is for us, it’s for His glory. His grace is enough and His “power is made perfect in [our] weakness” (2 Corinthians12:9).
