When God Doesnt Fix It
Is it possible that good things can come out of our broken dreams?
Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story was faced with her worst fear-her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible, but currently there is no cure to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairytale life she had dreamed of is no longer possible. And yet Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus through this and other broken dreams.
Laura’s understanding and faith has grown as she examines what the Scriptures say about God. For years she believed myths such as:
* God always promises happy endings
* We can avoid pain if we serve God
* If we pray hard enough, God will fix our problems
* God can’t use us until our story gets resolved
Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives didn’t turn out as we expected. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith-men like Abraham, Joseph, David, and Paul-and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God.
God may not fix everything. In fact, your situation might never change or get better, but you can get better regardless of your situation.
