Everything everything pt. 2
By Destiney McIntosh
Everything is exactly the way it is supposed to be.
In my last blog post, I talked about looking back and questioning if the things that happened were supposed to be that way.
I think sometimes too there can be moments in the wait of the present where the same question arises whether things are supposed to be this way. Or even why are things this way? Are things going the right way?
I am always in my thoughts. Thinking of the effects of choices. I recognize that the culmination of things that I have experienced create the moment that I am in now.
When I wrote these series of everything poems a year ago, I believe that the Lord was showing me some truths to the questions that I had at the time.
I was asking God if I was on the right track. Did I go the right way? Had I made the right decisions? What would my life had been like if I’d done ______ .
And then God spoke everything was exactly the way it was supposed to be. everything is exactly the way it is supposed to be.
In other words, trust my plan. Trust my work. Trust me here.
That’s what I’m learning in life. To just trust the story that God has written for me, no matter what it looks like around me or how it may differ from what I planned for myself or how I thought things would go. God says it’s exactly the way it’s supposed to be. Exactly how he’s written it.
As a writer, I know what it feels like to see a story come together. That smile that I get when a character has a breakthrough or when elements of the story work together like I planned. I imagine that’s how God feels as my life unfolds. He rejoices because it’s going perfectly according to plan and it’s leading to an expected end. So I rejoice too, because I know that it’s leading to the promise of hope and a future.
