No More Bad News
I wanted to cover my ears. More sad news, more unexpected tragedy, more defeat. I didn’t want to hear one more negative outcome.
I was tired, ready to throw my hands up in the air. Scream.
I know you’ve been there too. If we are honest sometimes the good doesn’t come soon enough and like Lazarus’ sisters we are left wondering why God didn’t show up sooner. Why didn’t he get here in time? Why didn’t he heal the sick, rescue the addicted, provide the finances? Why didn’t he give me what I wanted, what I begged him for?
It’s decision time. I want to trust God. I want to believe the promises in his word. I want to lean on his understanding. I want to surrender my will.
So today, when my whys outnumber my understanding and my faith, I’m going to surrender to his plan.
I can’t see it. I don’t understand it. I don’t like it.
But I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has a plan that includes walking with me every step of the way. His plan will not leave me alone. He is with me.
He’s with you too. Always. Everywhere. Invited or not, it is who he is. Forever everywhere. Emmanuel. God with us.
And in my spirit, I am comforted.
