It's hard to understand all the troubles we encounter each day. From losing a job to watching a loved one fall prey to alcohol or drugs. From horrible health reports to devastating financial trials.
But God tells us we don't have to understand. He tells us not to even try to understand it all... but to simply trust Him. He is sovereign. He is in control. He is watching us and He does not sleep or slumber.
Makes this little quote I found on Pinterest all the more meaningful, don't you think?
It's true. Life may look bleak and things may just be coming together in great ways we are totally unaware of...but, it's hard to remember when everything seems like it is falling apart. Still, think about it...
when Jesus was crucified, it looked like life was over. Then three days later He had overcome the grave and the world.
So when trouble surrounds you, remember Who's holding you in the palm of His hand. Remember that no matter how much you love someone else and care about their troubles and difficulties, God loves them more. And God knows exactly what He is doing to make "all things work together for His glory". Trust Him. He's still on His throne. He's got this thing!
