As a story teller, sometimes I find myself changing the trajectory of my articles. I could start off to write a tragedy, then change to a “happily ever after". I am the author, so I decide. My main focus is to achieve an expected end.
I believe this is how God's grace rewrites the stories of our lives. Left to the enemy, our stories will end negatively. Jesus addressed Peter about this in Luke.
Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers. (Luke 22:31–34, NIV)
Can you reflect today on areas of your life that could have gone wrong except for God? It is indeed an honour to have a merciful father who gives second chances.
