I believe nothing is ever wasted in our lives and that God can use it all for our good. In one chapter of Light from a Dark Night, I wrote about seeing my life as a funnel. A picture is worth a thousand words and I hope this picture will explain how I felt even more so than writing about it.
I feel like my thoughts and prayers led and even directed me from birth toward my experience in China and to participate in one of God’s courtrooms. You can read about this experience in much greater detail than I will go into right now but, I promise – if you are searching for meaning regarding tests and trials of faith then you will be blessed with wisdom and insight from God while reading “Light from a Dark Night”.
The concept of the funnel as explained in the attached picture is another way of thinking about the wide and narrow paths Jesus spoke about. When on the wide road of the world all feels well but, this road eventually continues to narrow into a restrictive place without much revelation and freedom. The path which leads to life, starts out looking narrow and this is probably why it’s the road less traveled. But this road while narrow at first, soon opens up into a wide expansive place filled with ever increasing peace and joy. ~Anne
