Isaiah 48:17

This is what the Lord says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.- Isaiah 48:17

Dear Lord, 

When I watch a movie or read a book, I get an adrenaline rush from surprise twists in the plot.  They make the story exciting, bigger than life and powerfully unpredictable.  It's what keeps me watching and reading. But when you introduce the same plot twisters in my own life, my first response is insult and anger because I like predictability in my self made kingdom.  How dare you try to write my story!  But ah, your word reminds me that you are the author and the plot you write is what is best for me and others. Help me to keep reading with hopeful anticipation what you write in the pages of my story. Amen

Your life is fun for God to write.  To enjoy the plot is to commune with him.
