More Producers Than Merely Players
We always seem to find what we are looking for in this life. I believe the underlying reason for that is that we are the incognito authors of these passion plays. We choose the plots, the props, and the people who help us perform these productions.
We only imagine that we are human chess pieces being moved by unseen hands across the chess board of life. The reality is that it is all according to our own plan. Our todays are but the results of the scenes we rehearsed in our heads and hearts yesterday. Don’t believe it? Try a little experiment with me. Spend today looking for clues behind the unfolding drama of your daily life. Listen for the cues and stage directions as the scenes change. Try to step out of your role and be just an observer.
There is a line in Michael Buble’s wonderful song, Home, that says, “Sometimes, it’s like I’m living someone else’s life, like I just stepped outside when everything was going right.” Try that for just twenty-four hours and see Who is really in charge. I think you will be amazed, pleasantly surprised, as well as encouraged. The encouraging word for today is home. Don’t get to feeling too at home in this little role you have chosen. There are bigger and more challenging roles ahead, all tailor made for you by the One who knows you best – You.
