Faith intersects with his faithfulness

By Dave Henning / April 26, 2015

In Chapter 9 of How Can I Possibly Forgive?, author Sara Horn states that it is futile to remain angry with God because nothing good comes from it.  Sara relates a story she heard about a pregnant woman who was run off the road and killed when a firefighter who had just finished his shift fell asleep at the wheel.

The woman left behind her husband, a pastor, and a little girl- a toddler who would never know her mother.  Yet, a few years after the accident, the husband and the firefighter had become friends.  Reflecting on the experience, the husband offered these words of insight and encouragement:

“I never would have wanted to endure what I went through, and I never want to feel that way again, but I am who I am today because of what God has done in me through these circumstances, and for that I’m grateful.  God is faithful- when our little bit of faith intersects with his faithfulness, God shows up big and does some amazing things in us and through us.”

As Sara explains, it’s not so much about our story as it is about God’s story.  We’re part of the narrative.  Our life is not our own.  God is the Lord of our life.
