I know that there are those of you are going through tough times but always remember that there will be clear skies again!
As humans it is in our nature to question everything. I am as guilty of it as anyone. In my small limited brain I have this need to know why things are happening at this moment. Here is a little secret. God knows and he hears these kinds of questions every nano second every day and frankly decides if he answers the question or not? The hard fact is the world works on his time and not ours. As big and physically strong I am there are certain things I can’t control and God’s timetable doesn’t work the same as mine. That lesson I learned over 11 years ago as I stood by my dying fathers beside and he said to me ” I’m dying son”. At that moment it hit that God is in control of this show and not me. As I help guide my wife to her final resting place I ask that question of God often. Hey God Why Now?
In scripture the mention of someone having or needing to have a gentle spirit is very common. Of course like many things is scripture people have this habit of twisting things around. Having a gentle spirit does not mean that you are weak minded by any means. In many cases it is just the opposite. Some of those folks can by their mere presence and words can make you feel about 2 inches tall! As the saying goes ” don’t take my kindness as a sign of weakness”. Can a gentle spirit be taught or is it something that is in someone’s soul? I honestly don’t know. I do know that when you come across these people make your life better!
For those of you who do not believe that God has his own plan I feel sorry for you but that premise is wrong. An example of this is there were 2 infants born about 600 miles and a decade apart. Of course at the time of their births there was no way that either family could possibly have known or imaged that these 2 infants would become husband and wife one day. That meeting was started by an add in a christian paper ( long before e-harmony). There were these things called letters that you had to actually. That was over 22 years ago and the 10 year age gap was really never an issue. Well now one is in failing health and the plans have been made for when that horrible day comes one will be left behind while the other gets to spend eternity with Our Lord and Saviour.
