“What kind of Love is writing my story till the end with Mercy’s pen? Only You.” Natalie Grant, Alive
A guest to the blog: Live Write Thrive, Nina Schuyler, states: “Research shows when someone is surprised, dopamine increases and emotions intensify up to 400 percent. Heightened attention ensues, and so does extreme curiosity, in an attempt to figure out what is happening during the surprise. Surprise also causes a shift – it forces a change in perspective. Your reader is hyper alert, curious, in the moment, a perfect state to tell the unexpected emotion and have the reader feel it.”
As I read this, suddenly, a surprise – God does this with us, as He continues to write our story!
We call it a Revelation or Epiphany!
“We live our lives as a tale that is told” Ps 90:9b
In the process of our life, God is writing new things into our life daily. He tucks in the A-HA truth revealed, the hit-the-breaks WOW seconds, the surprises of life – where we stop… suspended in a moment…, but completely alert, curious, surprised, emotions intensified… just a split-second of time and our (possibly lifelong) perspective shifts. Now we see – what we couldn’t/didn’t see before.
