This week Sue has given us the word CONTEXT to work with.
If you want to see how other authors have dealt with context go visit Sue at
Context is defined as- the circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.
My daughter’s trip to Thailand for her senior internship was done in the context of her desire to spend a summer in Africa. The trip to Thailand was all but paid for though, so she took it never expecting to find God in the midst.
She did find God though. In that place on the other side of the world from where she thought she would go, God gave her over to discoveries that filled her with passion and courage to try new things.
On the surface she couldn’t make sense of what God was doing or how this series of events worked toward His plan. It may not have been Africa but she still got to ride elephants. She also got to do many of the other things she thought she would be doing in Africa.
In the end location or specific situation may not make much difference to God’s plan for our lives. These things may affect how the plan is carried out but they won’t change the plan. God is the larger context in which we live. Trust Him.
Have you ever been in a situation that seemed to go against what you thought God wanted to do in your life only to discover it was part of His plan all along? Tell me about it!
Then check out the video on this sight. Context is key!
