But what about in reality? Over the years I have learned through some nasty, snarly lessons that when I am down and out that is a great opportunity to trust in the Lord.
But then I say, how many times do I have to learn to trust Him? Again and again?
Well, last night in the wee small hours, as I flipped from side to side and raced through a half dozen Sudoku puzzles I finally came to rest in a truly thankful moment. The mind battles that haunted me came to rest in a trusting sleep.
It is odd that no matter how advanced the years I still have to go through the "Jacob-wrestling-with-The-Angel' hours before it dawns on me that yes, this is one more opportunity to trust in the Lord.
For all the 'wrestling' times through my life, I am thankful. I take it that means He is not finished with me yet nor has He thrown me on the trash heap. Hallelujah! Amen!
(second-coming clouds I snapped this past week)
"For I know the plans I have for you,
Plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
Plans to give you Hope and a Future."
That is my wish for you today.
God bless and be well.
