Never Ending Arrow

"A line stretches out as far as the mind can imagine, with no end in sight. This is the unending story of our God, who ran after us to make us his children. Our pixel of a life, one dot of his eternal arrow."

God chose to show His goodness- His glory- through me and you. His GLORY! You may be thinking: Lord, what about my dark moments? Can your goodness show through those moments?  Did you ever think that maybe your dark moments, God intended for good. YES! God can show his glory through our darkest moments, our hurts, our disappointments. (Don't X out just yet...I promise I am getting somewhere.) 

Let's go back to the arrow...
An arrow has no end. An arrow points and leads. Every moment in our life leads to something. That something is called, our purpose. 

"In a futile attempt to erase our past, we deprive the community of our healing gift. If we conceal our wounds out of fear and shame, our inner darkness can neither be illuminated nor become light for others...hope knows that if great trials are avoided great deeds remain undone and the possibility of growth into greatness of soul is aborted." 

WOW! Can you say mind blowing revelation. Or it was for me anyway! Deep wounds leave scars. No matter how much "scar be gone" we use (completely made that up-but you get the idea), it will not get rid of the fact we were once wounded.   Did you ever share "scar" stories growing up? You know, trying to one up your friends. Your deep wounds were healed, but the scar still held the story. 

God can use our life scars. He will show His glory through our stories. Don't be ashamed. Don't try to erase the past. Let his light shine through you and tell the world how God saw you through! "Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you." Psalms 63:3 

Every moment is being added to his eternal arrow which is leading you to your purpose! 

Always Remember...
You have a purpose.
You were built to show Gods Glory.
You were made to do great things in HIS name.

Embrace the arrow! You are part of His story.

 "Give us faith that your arrow never ends and that to live as a part of it is the reason we were created."
