What If? The Lesson I Learned From My Sister
There are a few people that see the brokenness in this world, yet still choose to believe in the goodness of God. They know that a bad day, week or year, does not make for a bad God.
•They choose good even when they know there is risk.
•They choose good when they know their love is not enough.
•They choose good when they know it will break their hearts.
•They choose good when they know it will be difficult.
•They choose good when it hurts.
They choose good over staying in their comfort zone because they know a life without risk is not a life of abundance (John 10:10).
They choose good over our brokenness because they know the strength of God’ love is greater than their tender hearts (Romans 8:37-39).
They choose good because they know of the God of comfort, peace, love and Grace (2 Corinthians 1:3).
Following Jesus is one of the biggest adventures we can take here on earth, filled with the biggest blessings, unexpected miracles, beautiful healing and answered prayers. But it is also a risk. We risk our comfort, our love, our hearts and even our lives.
We risk it all for the belief that if we can show one person the love of Jesus Christ then it is worth it, even if it means a broken heart. We risk pain knowing that we serve a God of mercy and He does not let one thing go to waste.
We take the risk even if we don’t have the perfect answer or solution, knowing God will use it for His good (Romans 8:28).
So, what if choosing good and difficult were the same thing?
What if taking a risk is simply living out our belief in radical faith?
What if our broken hearts are just a gentle reminder of our desperate need for Jesus in this life?
What if our unending tears are a precursor to never ending joy?
What if? Would you still take the risk? I hope so. We need more good in this world.
