Rewrite the Story?

My friend posted this quote tonight. Our sons we killed in The Accident:

Just that maybe … Maybe you don’t want to change the story, because you don’t know what a different ending holds.

There’s a reason I am not writing the story and God is. He knows how it all works out, where it leads, what it all means. I don’t.

~ Ann Voskamp

When I look back, I think I want to rewrite the story, I want to undo some of what has been done. But I cannot.

When I look at things above, set my mind on things of the Spirit, and trust God to love me as only He can… I know that He is writing a GOOD story. He has a plan; it is a GOOD plan.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Romans 8:28-30

One thought on “Rewrite the Story?

  1. Miss Kathleen ~ There are many a times, over the last 6 years I have wished I could have re-written the story too. I find I have wished I had not married my kids’ father… like that would have changed things. But I have realized that God gave me gifts. Gifts that I just never expected to outlive; and her I am. I know that due to my son’s birth and his subsequent death, some 19 years later, evidence collected solved crimes that happened before my son was born. So, somethings seem to have been put in motion before I even knew I was going to be a mum.

    It is a story that is already read by one.
