A lot happens in a year. Growth and lessons. Introductions and goodbyes. Joys and sorrows. Blessings and opportunities.
And, in everything that happens, God is masterfully orchestrating details we know nothing about. He is so far above and beyond the scope of our thoughts, and yet he cares deeply about our cares and concerns. He sees us, hears us, knows us.
He has spoken Truth to us.
Isaiah 55:8-12 "'For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are my ways your ways,' declares the LORD. 'As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so it is that my word goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.'"
Join me in taking a moment to praise God: Because He's Always Faithful.
