I once sat in a table discussion at a workshop
We were asked to share about God’s work in our lives.
Every story, told, took a matter of minutes.
But, I was struck that every story used a phrase like,
“And a long time later,”
“Over the course of years…”
To say a phrase like that takes seconds.
To mention hours/ days/ years of prayer takes a breath.
To live it, though, is to know the desert.
And to have traveled through the desert…is to know a beautiful side of God.
To look back and say, “We came from there, together,”
Is the start
Of just about
Every good story.
