Everything that exists had a starting point . . . including you. You may have started on purpose. You may have started by accident (from your parent’s perspective). You may even have started through the magic of medical science. Whatever the circumstances, you had a starting point and it began before you were aware of it.Physical life is one of many starting points. Your formal education had a starting point. Your career had a starting point. Your romantic life had a starting point. Your experience as a parent had a starting point.Faith has a starting point as well.
We’ve all had moments in our lives when we’ve asked ourselves the question: “What if?” What if I get this promotion? What if this relationship doesn’t work out? What if my kids succeed? What if they don’t?
These “what-if” questions can either fill you with fear or fuel your faith. When you experience challenging circumstances, what if God is in the midst of it all, working in and through your life in ways far greater than you can imagine?
