A person's story can tell you a lot about them.
People, places and things are all part of the big picture.
The other day I had the privilege of going to a very good friend’s wedding. As I made it to the food line (because I was starving)
I got to hear some really cool nuggets of how the bride and groom met.
As this beautiful woman shared how God used her and her husband to introduce the bride and groom, I couldn't help but look in her eyes. I saw such a joy as she told the story.
I looked at her and said Intersections.
(That’s what kept coming up in my spirit over and over)
She and her husband were part of Gods plan to bring two people together and we got to enjoy the fruit as we sat and watched our friends exchange their vows.
Intersections are a huge part of who we are. It tells of who came into our lives; who God removed, who He intercepted, what He kept you from, how he blocked things and who He is leading you to now. All of which tells “YOUR story."
Yes, believe it or not, God still uses people to be a part of your story.
The good, the bad aaaaand the ugly.
He’s working out the smallest details that makes no earthly sense to us at the time- but in order to see the end result, we must be willing and obedient to allow Him to work out the plans.
I tell people all the time, “I’d love to hear your story or your journey”. Why?
Because it’s inspiring and maybe just maybe you were brought into someone’s life for a paragraph, a chapter, an ending or a new beginning. It’s never just about us.
It’s to bring hope to others!
We won’t know until after the story unfolds, what God was doing behind the scenes. But what I realized there in that food line, was don’t freak out with your intersections! Because lets be honest, we can overthink things and talk ourselves out of a blessing.
Intersections happen for a reason. Don’t ever think when you feel "led" to reach out to someone, it’s just your flesh; you could be a part of the story that God is using you for.
Allow Him to weave you in. It’s always for a reason.
And the people.....well don’t push away people just because you don’t understand their purpose. I used to self sabotage friendships because I was afraid they would get too close and see how messed up I was.
Even if they are there to add the period to your sentence, it’s necessary.
Trust the process even through the intersections.
