Genesis 24 [link]
Based particularly on Genesis 24:58 which is quoted at the beginning and end of the poem - Rebekah is given the choice whether she wants to go with Abraham's servant to be Isaak's wife. I decided to look at the decision process here.
Don't we often think a lot about all that might go wrong, and base our decisions on worries? I know I do.
But life is not about avoiding risky things and avoiding pain. We need to trust God. Rebekah and Isaak's family were a bit dysfunctional in the end (favouritism, the rivalry of Jacob and Esau...). It won't necessarily end up perfect. But God has a plan even if it doesn't end up perfect - we just need to trust Him.
