One of the hardest things to do is to be thankful, to feel joy when there are dark days and hours in life. That’s how it has been with me and others close to our family for the last few months. We are waging a war, a war against the strongholds that have one of those very close, and very special to us… one of our own. Reading “Holy Experience” tonight, I was reminded that all we see is a fragment of life at this moment, but God sees it all – He is sovereign.
“He sees it all. We cannot see how the bad might be good. God is sovereign and He is good and He sees and work all things together for good. In Him all is Grace…”
It’s hard to understand how something so bad could be for good. It’s even more difficult when it hits home. My eyes cannot see what God sees, all I can do is keep my eyes focused on Him and trust Him. So I pray with my eyes open, wide open. It’s the only way to pray without ceasing.
“When it’s dark, God has us in the rock’s cleft, covered us with His hand. Dark may be the holiest ground: God’s passing by.” ~ 1000 Gifts
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son… ” Romans 8:28-29
