God's Winking at Us
Joel Miller, JoelJMiller.com
It’s easy to get frustrated at God and the way he appears to be ignoring our plans and prayers. But God’s ways are not, so Isaiah informs us, ours. And it’s interesting what can happen when we look back at unfulfilled ambitions, unplanned occurrences, and unanswered prayers.
Sometimes we can see God winking at us through the supposed disappointment. Why? Because in retrospect it all turned out so much better than we had hoped.
