God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
Psalm 46.1 NLT
As I plan to dress for the day I remember to put on faith, without which I cannot please God…so…rather than ruminate on the issue, I’ll focus on the Lord:
- God is trustworthy – even for the antagonist that is the present source of a GREAT LOT of bother.
- He can do beyond what I ask.
- His ways are beyond/above/etc. mine – I would do well to remember that when tempted to complain…after all, I was NOT present when he made the foundations of the earth 🙂 – so at best my understanding is severely limited. [See Job]
- He is Sovereign.
- Romans 8.28-29
- This present thing was ordained for some reason that can be summed up – for His glory and my good…what that means specifically will be made known later…how much later does not matter…trusting in/with obedience is all I am required to do.
And the final thing is not to let myself be swept up or affected by the emos of others…some folk love drama and ruminating on drama…good grief 🙂 I’ve never wanted either for my life.
