A Story of MAKING PEACE with an UNEXPECTED LIFE
An unexpected life. Isn’t that what all of us live? As a young girl I had many dreams and even more plans. Unexpected is the perfect description of what my life has been and something tells me you would probably say the same thing.
As we grow up, we dream of the perfect husband, house and number of kids to complete our family but what do we do when life turns out nothing like or even only partly like our dream? Michele Cushatt’s latest book Undone is an amazingly written memoir of her unexpected life and how she has learned to embrace it.
I am an avid reader but I have to say I cannot remember the last time I read a book which impacted my heart and mind as much as Undone.
Michele’s vulnerability and transparency is an amazing blessing. She not only tells of the events of her unexpected life but shares her heart of both struggle and acceptance through it. Her ability to show God’s hand and will in the middle of the mess is just what my heart needed.
It was a blessing to hear how Michele struggled through an unwanted divorce, the blessing of a remarriage at the same time the challenges of step parenting, blending a family, battling cancer and then adopting 3 high needs children. None of these events were her dream but through the journey she sees how each of them were God’s plan for her.
Michele reminds us that in the thick of life we have to remember that God is good. He is there with us. He can see what we can not and He calls us to trust Him. Learning to take a step back and see the big picture is an awesome gift which will encourage our heart like so few other things will.
In the final pages of her book I find one of my favorite quotes:
“I’m undone. Hungry, questioning, searching, struggling. Not even close to polished and pristine. But I’m breathing. And believing. And loving this crazy, unexpected, and imperfect life.”
Is not this the words of all of our hearts?
Undone is a MUST read! I know it will bless, encourage, challenge and infuse hope in your hearts as it did in mine.
