Good News for Real People: Gospel for the Discouraged - September 30, 2018


God comes to us not where we should have been

if we had made all the right choices in life;

not where we could have been

if we had taken every opportunity

that God has offered us;

not where we wish we were

if we didn’t have to be in the place

where we find ourselves;

not where we think we are

because our minds are out of sync with our hearts;

not where other people think we are

or think we ought to be

when they are attending to their own agendas.

God meets us where we really are.
