Today I want to share with you this link from my favorite devotion booklet, Our Daily Bread. The “U” part of My TEA CUPP Prayers is all about UNDERSTANDING our stories, seeing how God has been at work in our lives, and sharing our testimonies for Jesus with others.
“The Next Chapter” from the August 25, 2013 Our Daily Bread tells the story of missionary Steve Saint. Steve’s father was a missionary pilot killed in Ecuador in 1956. Now as a missionary, Steve encourages others to “let God write your story.”
What a wonderful message for all of us! Instead of plowing ahead with what we want to do, we should follow the path God has planned for us, whether it is who to marry, where to live and work, how many children to have, or how to respond to trials. Let’s let God write our stories!
Please read this wonderful devotion by Cindy Hess Kasper in Our Daily Bread.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
