Leaving Clues

In girl meets GOD, Lauren Winner describes her journey of faith and how Jesus was slowly “goading [her] toward Him.” She had been given Christian pamphlets; she’d asked her mother for a slender, gold cross necklace; she’d gone to midnight Mass with a friend. Though she remained an Orthodox Jew, she would later, eventually, choose Christ.

She writes:

Nothing came of the pamphlets, or the cross, or the midnight Mass, but that is how the clues God leaves sometimes work. Sometimes nothing comes of them. Sometimes, as in a great novel, you cannot see until you get to the end that God was leaving clues for you all along.

I find this encouraging, greatly encouraging. I want God to use me to leave His clues. Though I may never know how those clues add up for someone, though I may not ever see the moment when the final clue is given and the mystery understood, I want to be a giver of clues.

  1. You never know how God will use you. I got saved Monday, and it was because of a dream in which my former pastor’s wife made a simple statement about being sure of our salvation.

  2. ๐Ÿ™‚ WooHoo! Yippee! I’m thrilled beyond words, Revka! And the whole host of Heaven rejoices over YOU!!!

    Tears wind their way down my face as I write this . . . I rejoice at your salvation. I can’t wait to meet you; perhaps in this life or in heaven. It won’t matter. I’m so thankful for our Father who has drawn you into His loving arms.


  4. Thanks, guys. ๐Ÿ™‚ After having made 3 professions that did nothing for my soul, it is so nice to have this uncontrollable desire to tell everyone about the change in my life. I appreciate your uplifting comments and look forward to meeting you both … someday ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks in advance for your prayers as I grow in Christ.
