“The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him…”
– Acts 17:24-27 ESV
I wrote this haiku in reflection of God’s sovereignty revealed in Acts 17:
Not an accident
Who or how or where or when
I have been put here.*
He hasn’t, didn’t, and won’t ever make a mistake.
He doesn’t look down on creation thinking, “Whoops.”
Every circumstance, person, thing, and experience is given to me on purpose.
May I live my life in light of that reality!
