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.
