Yes, I have seen God take a stubborn girl who hated life and wanted nothing to do with Him, and wait patiently for her to realize that life with Him could be so much better. Maybe not easier but at least she would know that she is loved!
He waited patiently. In the times when she choose her own path he didn’t scold and shake His head and become mad He just gently guided her back to Him..
Then when she continued to make bad decisions and still deny Him her life was going to be taken but He had other plans for her so He saved her life. She finally after a couple more years ran into His arms and calls Him daddy.
A week ago her life was going to be taken again but His plans for her were still not complete so He stretched out His arms to her and let her lay in comfort and peace so that she would not be afraid and 2 days later she awoke to this world again….
God is a God of peace as complicated as it is to wrap our minds around everything wonderful that He has for us….
