He is Sovereign

I have no choice but for the moment, to set aside all trifles and meaningless thoughts, to put on hold all the cares that have suddenly lost significance, and consider the soveriegnty of God. When my heart cries "Why," alongside of thousands of other why's, the question turns to a plea. Please, show Yourself sovereign. Please, prove Yourself sufficient even in this. He will. He always has, but for the moment, I do not like this course. I wish to see it undone, but it cannot be.

I heard one faculty member say to another, "It will be interesting to see how God will work." It will, won't it. What hope Christians have with that one truth. He has not drawn back His hand. He will continue. He is soverign.

Today it hurts. Today there is confusion, emotion, questions. But today, by choice, I must find thankfulness and rejoice in my God. That and pray. Pray for those who hurt far more than I. Pray for those who are thrust into new decisions and change. Pray for those I can reach by no other means than prayer.

Thank you for the post. You're right, it's a HARD day. We must choose to trust in our Sovereign God.

Thanks Heather! We do have the comfort knowing that God is in control and He knows the path that we are to take.
Praying for you!

Amen, Heather. I was really looking forward to one day having him up on the platform when I eventually graduated. ;-) God is in control though, no matter what. Petty concerns are removed by the winds of change and the winds show that there is something more, something greater that must be focused on: the Hand of God.

We must be in great prayer for our traveling teams, as well as for Dr. J and his family.
