Just when you think you’ve got it sorted out life throws you a curve. Were it not for my belief that God is sovereign and still in charge I would sink into despair. We as mortals have really no hope except in God. I am profoundly reminded of this everyday. Our life here is full of messy stuff and messy situations and messy lives. I am thankful to have hope beyond all this, hope in the One who has all the answers and can see far beyond what I see.
I have been teary today. Sad because getting older means the physical ability to do more is no longer there. Sad because I cannot change or fix the problems and health issues in my children’s and grandchildren’s lives. This sadness will pass, I know, it always does. God is still good. God is still God.
