Usually, I share quotes on Wednesdays, but this one aligned so naturally with my weekly gratitude post that I felt led to pass it along here.
I had also written – and nearly finalized! – a post related to these words, only to receive a not-so-subtle nudge from the Lord to delete it and let the quote stand on its own. Every time I try comment or offer my own insight on what these words mean, I feel like I’m getting a clear and unmistakeable veto from the Holy Spirit, basically telling me to hush (I have been trying to craft this post for an hour – that is a long time for me).
So I’m going to respond in obedience and keep any further opining to a minimum. What I do feel authorized to say, though, is that these words are incredibly wise, biblical, and can offer us a tremendous source of comfort and steadiness – even in the midst of our most turbulent times. After all, God is Alpha and Omega over the good and the bad, which means that He knows where each one of us is now and has a plan at work – an important truth to remember when our circumstances (and feelings!) seem to be telling us otherwise. Talk about a reason to be thankful!
And that’s apparently all that I’m allowed to say – today, anyway. 🙂
