On my way to speak at a Casa de Dios, a HUGE mega-church in Guatemala, I kept trying to roll down my window.
I told my driver (a cute little soccer mom), “Hey, my window won’t roll down. I think the child lock is on.”
She calmly assured me, “Oh, it’s not a child lock. This car is bulletproof.”
“Why does the church own a BULLETPROOF car?” I said.
She answered, “Oh, the church DOESN’T. This is MY car!”
(Now — you know I just had to ask.)
“Why do YOU have a bulletproof car?”
She smiled and replied, “This is Guatemala.”
Are you kidding me?
In such a beautiful country with these warm, friendly people—you have to drive a bulletproof car? How did I get here in the middle of this MESS?
Ever felt like that? Ever wonder, “How did I get here?”
We can’t control where we’re born. We can’t pick who our parents are.
My biological dad gave me up BEFORE I was even born. And then, there was rape, molestation, abuse, and divorce—all things that I couldn’t control.
Maybe there were things that happened to you that you had NO CONTROL over. (I get it!)
Maybe you feel like your life’s a mess— and all that’s left is RUINS? (Been there— done that—designed the t-shirt!) Lol
The fact is, you’re probably not even aware of the fabulous PLAN that God has for your life! I know, I wasn’t.
Jesus sees beauty in our ashes. He sees our DESTINY in the things that we might want to walk away from.
And suddenly—God turns our ruins into something BEAUTIFUL!
Have you ever wondered, “How did I get here?” (“Y” or “N”)
