Trusting God to Write Your Story

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Deep down, we all know that the best things in life come at a cost. 

Dannah Gresh: This is Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, co-author of You Can Trust God to Write Your Story.

Nancy: Romans 5 says, “Suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us” (vv. 4–5). 

Most of us would like to experience the benefits and blessings of suffering . . . without suffering! We want sparkling diamonds without the intense pressure and prolonged time that it takes to form them.

If we wrote our own stories, we’d opt for sunny skies and smooth sailing; we’d skip the dreary, stormy days. We’d write a narrative in which we don’t really need God.

But God loves us too much to let us have that kind of life. 

Trusting God to write your story means saying “yes” to the heat and pressure, or whatever God chooses to use, to shape you into His masterpiece.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
