I think the older I get the less things rattle me. Not that I have ever been one to get all crazy emotional over things but definitely in my youth I was much more easily overwhelmed.
This weekend within a day and a half I had 3 things hit me. One was Dorothy which i mentioned in the previous post, another was a big fight with my son and his girlfriend and the third was some potentially stressful news regarding my new job. Normally I might shut down. But, while I would definitely say I was off my game, this weekend I never felt rattled.
I know God is here. I know he is working. I know God has placed me in this job and whatever He has for me there I am ready to walk through. I know my son and I believe God is walking with us as we prepare him for adulthood. And I know God is with Dorothy.
I don't know why God does what He does. I don't know why he socks us with so many things at once, why he doesn't spread these things out a little more. But I know this..."in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Rom 8:28
So I am just going to relax and watch God work.
