We’re probably not talking about a car/house kind of thing. More meaningful than that.
Imagine you just died
and you’re in heaven engaged in a heavy duty conversation with God.
He’s showing you some things that didn’t happen in your life, some things that for some reason you didn’t do. Maybe a project, idea, vocation, relationship, ministry…something like that.
And you say, “That’s exactly what I really wanted!”
And he says, “I know.”
And you realize
That thing you wanted was what he wanted, too
That’s why you wanted it. He made you want it, so you would cooperate with him, trust him, and do it.
But you didn’t.
So now, after you wake from your Scrooge dream and find you’re still alive, what are you going to do?
Not believe it?
The dream conversation could turn into a real one at any second.
