Faith is the art of holding onto things your reason has accepted, in spite of your changing moods.” — CS LEWIS, Mere Christianity
Faith is seeing the invisible, not the non-existent. — AW Tozer
Over the course of some of those years, completely out of the blue and even what felt to be involuntarily, I’d find myself humming that song “Save the Best for Last” by Vanessa Williams. It was incredibly strange. I’m not one prone to humming, but there were instances when I felt maybe God was nudging me through a slightly modified conglomeration of those unexpected lyrics He’d place in my heart, which I wouldn’t quite know what to do with. Sometimes it was encouraging; others it was actually a little annoying.
“Sometimes the snow comes down in June, sometimes the sun goes ’round the moon; Just when I thought [a] chance had passed, You go and save the best for last. It’s not the way I hoped or how I planned, But somehow it’s enough.”
In a sense, those words became a sort of prayer of surrender to God.
None of this looked how I had hoped or how I’d planned, but I was choosing to see God in it, choosing to see what He had for us through it.
