Funny how life has a knack of throwing surprises at you!
And funny how sometimes you don’t react the way you think you would!
I have recently heard news that, I thought when faced with this situation, would make me either very emotional or want to sort it out immediately!
And so I was ready to brace myself for my reaction when I met this person face to face and heard what they had to say!
Surprise of all surprises, my reaction was not at all what I thought it would be! There was a calm, peacefulness in me that I didn’t expect. I found myself feeling very at ease and almost with a philosophical sense of – it’s ok – not life’s most wonderful news, but time will pass and it will be ok.
This got me pondering about how sometimes in life we really need to stand up for rightness and justice. Sometimes we need to take action and sort out stuff to make a situation well again. …And just sometimes we need to do nothing except pray and hold it before God!
I’m so glad I know of the words of Jesus where He tells us to come to Him, when we are weary and heavy laden – and find His rest and ease as we learn from Him. I’m so glad there is a place to go where I can lay my burden down, cast all my cares on Him.
I’m so glad that He is God and knows about it all before, after and in between and that His Hands are strong enough to hold me and the stuff of life.
And I’m so glad that I know the One in Whom I trust, and I am sure that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until the day of His return.
