Revising the plot!
When our lives seems to have run into the desert sands of barrenness, and we wonder if we’ve lost our way, constant prayer can bring a surprising plot reversal–beauty from ashes, streams in the desert–rescuing one from inexorable cause and effect; sin/weakness and its consequences.
It can rewrite the direction and story of one’s life. This has often happened to me, and may it happen again, and again!
The great reversal, restoration: it’s always a theme running through Scripture, a promise foreshadowing the time beyond time when Aslan shall make all things new.
