Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like.
Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine.
Four weeks ago I made a note of the following…
Based on a recent event experienced and shared by my dad, and having read 8 novels in the past 3 weeks (by the time I post this it may increase to 9 or 10)*, I am understanding what is meant by “God is the author and finisher of our faith”.
My understanding is this, [human] authors are always intentional with the details they include in their novels. Not one piece of information is listed “by accident”, every detail is purposeful in telling and completing the books they write. Details that keep us on edge, smiling, crying, aww-ing, screwing our faces at and more.
How much more God, who is the author of our lives. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING can happen to any of us without His permission, without His knowing.
As a conductor is familiar with every instrument and every note and is capable of leading an array of instruments, in order to create harmonious sounds, so God is the one conducting our lives for a beautiful end. Everything he allows, even the deep and dark sounding notes in our lives, is for our good – once the book has been read and once the sound has been heard in its entirety, a great review and a standing ovation will be awarded to us.
Encore Lord! Encore!
