Have you ever taken the time to look back over your life to see God’s fingerprints on it? Do you see how He guided you to this job instead of that other one and how you were blessed there? Or maybe there was a challenge there – see how it forced you to grow and mature?
Can you see all the other decisions and event sin your life were God is there too? Maybe it is the college you went to, the major you ended up with, the person you dated or married, or the places you lived. Maybe it was the college you did not go to, the person you did not date, and so on. Maybe it is in the birth or a child or in that heart-wrenching loss. Maybe it is that divorce or breakup, in that firing, or in that addiction. As you take time to look back over your life, can’t you see that God was in each and every one of these points of your life?
As we look back and see how God led, directed, and loved into our lives, we gain a confidence to move forward. In this reflection we build a reserve to know that He will be there in our next difficulty, decision, or event. We know God will continue to be a part of our lives because He loves us so. “The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made.” (Psalm 145:9)
