Connecting the dots isn’t always easy. Just when you think you have them connected something comes along and erases them, disconnects them or moves them around.
Once disconnected, reconnecting them is not as easy as originally thought.
Why? The dots become rigid, uneven or mushy. They won’t stick together. And sticking together allows them to line up correctly.
Life is balance or it was designed to be. As with connecting dots our life needs to be lined up with God who gives us balance.
All of a sudden, evil throws a curve no one saw coming.
All of a sudden we are hit with the incomprehensible.
All of a sudden we are disconnected.
Or are we?
Somehow the workings of God show up in disconnecting dots. Even in the midst of horror unthinkable, he is there with his army shedding protection invisible to the human eye.
“What is seen is temporary. What is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4: 18.
In the wake of senseless tragedies our nation wakes up and prays.
In what appears to be the lurking evil of evils the supernatural workings of God spare us from what we don’t see or might ever know.
In the realm of misguided demonic wickedness is a God who brings forth miracles in the middle of impossibilities.
God cannot create disorder but when it erupts, God reconnects the dots placing them in the order in which he designed them.
1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.”
Whatever you may be dealing with or facing, if it is not peaceful, it is not God. Recognizing the difference is a step of faith; a moment of definition in a world of rancorous poison. In those moments he whispers in your ear a word of hope or wisdom to take the next step forward.
As we move forward trying to reconnect the dots after the Aurora massacre, continue to pray for the families of those who lost loved ones. Pray for the injured to be healed along with any emotional needs to be addressed and treated.
Pray for our nation to humble ourselves to seek God and his presence.
And thank God for reconnecting the dots in our lives to match up with his.
