It’s late Friday night. The kids are in bed and Becca has gone to visit her brother. It’s quiet here. Just my thoughts and I. It has to potential to be a depressing evening. With everything happening, it’s so easy for my thoughts to go dark very quickly. But I feel a great peace and calm right now.
Life falls apart sometimes. Riches and health come and go. But my hope is based on the infinite love and sovereignty of our great King. He is in control and that is comforting.
Daniel answered and said:
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; he reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him.”
(Daniel 2:20-22 ESV)
