A Way Other Than Our Own has been a challenging read for me. It has forced me to see that I continually try and fit God into my life, not the other way around. As a result, I end up experiencing the consequences that C.S. Lewis eloquently captures:
This Lenten season we have been reflecting on how we connect to God, hear His voice, and find a life “other than our own.” Personally, I’m in a hurry to get there and want the Cliff Notes. I feel like I have followed the steps to seek God’s calling, made my heart available, and have listened with great anticipation for what “His Way” for me will be. But… I hear nothing.
God isn’t giving me the Cliff Notes. Instead, He has given me this scripture:
He has made everything beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11
God’s way is a process, not a direct route, and we must trust in his timing. To wait for His voice. Our sermon this Sunday will look at what we do as Christians when we have called out to God, but hear only silence.
There is beauty in the silence, a lesson to be learned. It is a lesson of trust, faith, patience, and God’s perfect timing.
See you on Sunday! Tracy
