You Never Know What You Are Going to Get

If you have watched the movie Forrest Gump, most likely, you can’t help but remember the famous line, “Life is like a box of chocolates.  You never know what you’re going to get”.  

Life is unpredictable and confusing at times. 

Like with a box of chocolates, you may even have a map or a diagram that is supposed to help you choose the perfect treat without fail.  But, the inside of the chocolates are not visible so we have to rely on what we cannot see.

Sometimes you are looking at the map upside down, or bite into something you think you are going to like only to find out that it is not what you expected.

  Better yet, the box may be filled with surprises and give you the chance to discover something you had no idea you would enjoy.  

Faith Like Chocolates Involves what is not Seen

If we stay committed to our faith we can trust that we will select the right chocolate, or opportunity at the perfect time. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.  (Hebrews 11:1)
