Too often we look for shortcuts in our relationship with God. But when life derails, we find that our view of God is nothing more than a patchwork of rumors and secondhand information - too thin to sustain us in our moment of crisis. In those critical moments, we can choose to walk away from God...or let our questions lead us home.
Rethink the blessing... recover the call. Are you lucky? What if I told you that Jesus thinks you are? Not because of a charm or a chance but because of the arrival of the kingdom of God. You are lucky because you are invited into the kingdom. God has come to you in the midst of your mess and mistakes. He is inviting you to surrender, to live in a different way, and to participate in his work of rescuing and redeeming the world. You have a part in the future that God is bringing.
