The Rewrite

  Year 8-Day 248: Today, I am grateful for the rewrite.

"Human history is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy." - CS Lewis

CS Lewis experienced love and war in his lifetime. He knew trials and success. He was passionate about learning, writing and finding ways to communicate what he understood about Christianity and God's ways. I suspect at the end of his life, he would have believed his knowledge of the great "I AM" only touched the surface. 

As we learn more, our hearts are stretched. As the width and depth of the Father's love unfolds, we feel a sense of wonder. Our human responses seem hardly enough. The good news is, He knows us well. He knows our strengths and our struggles. 

He simply wants us to work on the rewrite, so we look more like Him in every new chapter. He is  Lord of the Rewrite in our lives. His love and grace change everything. Turning to Him means changing direction. Old things pass away... and we become new. 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. -2 Corinthians 5:17

Today, I am grateful for the rewrite.
