The last few weeks have basically pureed my emotions.
We started 2015 with the promise of great things on the horizon, but not before a number of trials.
I wasn’t expecting to lose a grandfather and an uncle to heart attacks almost exactly two weeks apart.
I wasn’t expecting to be part of a wearying discussion with dear friends, that resulted in severed relationships, in the middle of those two weeks.
But that’s just it. We can’t expect life to always go well. Life isn’t promised. Life isn’t stable. Life isn’t always understandable.
We live in a ‘great unknown’.
But in that great unknown there is a Known. A solid Foundation. A Rock to lean on. A Rrotection through storms and Strength in the burden.
Recentering on Him, rejuvenating in His presence, we find that while all the world may be falling down around us, our hearts shattered and souls wearied, He never changes. He remains the same yesterday, today and forever.
In that we find strength to navigate the great unknowns.
My pick post from last week was The Great Unknown. A beautifully written piece by Dawn Klinge. If you, too, find yourself in a time of need, take the time to soak in Dawns encouraging words and listen to the song at the end by Hillsong.
