2. Never put a comma where God puts a period. Joanna Weaver*
I appreciate Joanna Weaver’s “Grammar Lesson.” It’s a lesson I need to revisit from time to time.
Sometimes God asks us to wait—He places a comma in our lives. When that happens, we need to persevere, not run away or get ahead of God’s plans. (Isaiah 40:31)
At other times, God brings something to an end—He places a period in our lives. When this happens we need to move forward boldly and confidently. (Philippians 3:12-14)
As we abide by God's grammar rules we become more aware of His purposes and His love written between every line in our life's story.
Are you struggling with your story right now? If so, ask for God’s wisdom and grace to wait or move.
