Hard and Sweet

I got a call today and went to the hospital. The son had been in a car accident. He was and is in critical condition. I thought as I drove along, "If anyone thinks they are in control, they are misguided." God is in control. Only God.

During this lifetime hard and sweet things will happen to us. Note I did not say good and bad. God is good and he works all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. Hard and sweet. Both come from God. He is the author, maker and perfecter.

So what can we do? Worship Him. Even though He slay us we will worship Him. He can slay us and its ok, because He was slain. So as the Carter family grieves, we grieve with them. And we worship Him. Knowing them, I know they would say, "Amen!"
