“God made my life complete when I placed all the pieces before him.” Psalm 18.20
Friday’s memory will probably fade quickly however, if I do remember the day and I am honest, there are several examples of God completing David’s promise.
God’s absolute acceptance of who I am, His provision of grace to deal with my mistakes, and His ongoing commitment to bring me into a relationship with him makes my life complete.
God’s latter commitment often comes with part “a” and part “b”. Part “a” is experiences, often small, during the day that cause a change in my heart values, part “b.”
Here is the sequence.
I give my life unconditionally and passionately to God. I want whatever this relationship is more than family, sex, money, status, or a job. I want God with every fiber of my being.
God accepts me just as I am but will not let me stay that way. He changes me by touching me. God’s touch comes in many ways but, for me, the best is a result of interaction with people. I realize that your experience will be different from mine. I believe the underlying theme of who God is and what God does is the same for each person.
Rushing to work, I ran, almost literally, into a friend at the train station. Since I attempted to say hi, make contact with the eyes, and say hi if acknowledge there was a sinking feeling of rejection when nothing worked. Given the speed of our passing I count not be sure Alika was Alika so I determined to confront her later. Our later conversation confirmed her identity, her absolute surprise of the meeting, her horror of the result, and her genuine care and concern for what is going on in my life.
My conclusions in haste almost caused me to lose the experience of a friend who cares. Alika carried God’s voice of grace, acceptance, and involvement. Alika does not know how she became God’s way of making my life complete.
Are we always looking for God actions?
