What’s God got to do with it? What kind of question is that? Glad you asked.
You don’t have to talk to too many people or spend too much time poking around cyberspace to realize that people everywhere are posing tons of questions about pretty meaningful stuff. As I’ve looked at some of the responses, I’ve noticed they range from highly intellectual to well, just plain stupid.
The thing I’ve noticed sorely missing is a meaningful discussion in the general population about how God might just respond to those questions.
Listen, I’m no Bible scholar, but I do know God. He has shown up in the middle of enough of my messes and protected me in serious situations and brought me through some gut-wrenching crises, to make me more than a little familiar with His nature. I know from personal experience who He is and Whose I am. And what He’s capable of.
God is absolutely awesome and His plans for each one of us are amazing. This blog explores and addresses the nature of God and how very RELEVANT He is to absolutely EVERYTHING each one of us faces.
This is not pie-in-the-sky, wish-want-hope, cling-blindly-to-religion, take-a-leap-of-faith-and-just-believe theory. This God is the Real Deal, ready to meet us right where we are. He is all about eternity (as you most likely heard as a kid growing up in Sunday School). But what you might have missed (I did), is that He is also a practical, relevant, roll-up-His-sleeves, and be right here where the rubber meets the road, kind of God.
I’ve got some stories about my life that would shock some people out there. It’ll take some time to get it all out there–but I know it’s time to start spilling the beans. And I’m confident that as I share my adventures and respond to yours, God will show up in the middle of it, big as day. Encouraging, inspiring, and edifying for you and me as well–and even for someone else you know who might be seeking answers or struggling with one of life’s many curve balls.
What issue are you facing? What decision are you grappling with? What dragon are you fighting? What wolf is at your door? What regret can’t you shake? What’s keeping you awake at night?
God Himself knew you would be at this very juncture at this very moment in your life. He is not disappointed in you. He is not angry with you. He loves you more than you can imagine. He’s waiting for you to ask Him for his intervention, guidance, direction.
Little by little, we’ll address these great big issues and the incredible nature of our great big God, who holds them all in the palm of His capable hand. I can’t wait to see how He shows up here!
What’s your story? What’s God got to do with it? Everything.
