I too was taught the story of Joseph as a young child. Joseph and his coat of many colors. Loved by his father. Hated by his brothers. Chosen for a divine purpose – to save the lives of the chosen family of God where the salvation of mankind and re-unification with God would be fulfilled through His Son, Jesus Christ.
But Julie’s insight into the Joseph story, especially at this point of my life, reminded me that there’s much more to his story that I had forgotten and it gave me great hope. She reminded me that all God requires of us are belief and trust. While the trials and tribulations in my life have felt overwhelming and I have faltered in my trust, God is faithful even when I am not. He loves me even when I cannot love myself and, not from a place where I have to earn it, but from a place of true unconditional love. Even the worst times in my life, accepted in trust, are for my growth and His glory.
By going on the 30-day ‘Joseph Journey’, I am reminded on a daily basis of God’s great grace even when I feel like a ‘prisoner’ to the world. And because He has shown me the example of His great love for us, I can now fully love others and myself.
Thank you, Julie, for reminding me and giving me hope again. Ellen
