the story of: there's a design
I am someone who believes that God has a plan and a purpose for His people. I believe that there are reasons why our lives follow certain paths, why we meet certain people, and why things happen they way they do. I believe that God writes our stories. I believe that there is a design.
Sufjan Stevens wrote an amazing song for his friend Vito Aiuto, and every time I listen, I'm reminded that God knows us and has plans for us. It's up to us to live those plans. I don't believe that we need to get hung up on little things, but seeking to follow God is undoubtedly a good way to be living in His plan. Living in the fullness of His love, grace, and mercy is a good way to be living in His plan.
When thinking about your story, I invite you to listen to this song, and then tell me...What are some ways that you are purposefully living out your plan, your story?
