Expecting the Unexpected: An Unexpected Gift
There are times when good things come out of unexpected circumstances, things we never could have planned. Change is never easy, rarely anticipated, and often life-altering. A barn was not Joseph’s and Mary’s first choice of where to meet their son but holding the son of God in their arms made their surroundings insignificant. How can we choose a life of abundance instead of scarcity – trusting God will provide unexpected gifts even in the midst of life’s most difficult challenges?
This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: What experience in your life seemed to be a really bad event at the time, but over the years as you were able to look back at it, turned out to be quite different or maybe even a blessing? How has that experience changed the way you look at other rough times or even the future??
So, what about you? When you look back at bad or negative experiences in your past how has it changed the way you look at other rough times or how you’ll approach them in the future? We hope you’ll share your thoughts and ideas with us by using one of the following:
