He Is Sovereign

 
 
 
I sit and stare at nothing, concerned of the unknown. My kids are both away, one in Boot Camp, another at a Winter Retreat. Where did the time go O, Lord? They are both grown, grown to the point that now and then, I would wonder if they still need me.
 
There are days that I’d play these scenarios in my mind of what might happen when they’re not under my watch. The enemy works in unfathomable ways, accidents abound, what if I can’t be there in an instant by their side when it’s of utmost importance?
 
Most of the time I get so caught up in being their mother that I’d forget, Someone who loves them far beyond my capability, is watching them every waking second. That Someone so Sovereign already had their lives intricately planned, even before they were knitted in my womb.
 
There would always be circumstances in where I would try to hold close what I believe I can handle on my own. I guess it is human nature to worry and attempt to cope with “stuff” yourself. As I mature more with God, admitting I will forever be a work in progress, I find that I constantly have to re-adjust the manner in which I trust Him to work in my life. It takes practice to lay all my worries and fears at His feet.
 

I constantly have to re-adjust the manner in which I trust Him to work in my life.

 
Yes, the anxiety over my children being safe all the time does not let up, but, God has reassured me time and time again through His word that He would never leave me, nor my offspring. He even gave me His child, Jesus Christ, who is the same, yesterday, today and forever. I know one thing with all certainty that His grace is sufficient for me. Plentiful enough that I may be weak, yet with God I become strong.
 
 

Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.” – 2 Samuel 7:28

    Such a good blog post! God works in crazy and amazing ways that I’ll never understand. I always go back to the fact that Shawn, who was my middle school bully and someone I despised very much, is now a brother in Christ that I’m very much grateful for. Ashlie’s the person in our student group who brings so much wildness and laughter to the group. Never in a million years would I have thought that this is how things would turn out to be, but I’m blessed by your family always and I’m so grateful for that. I know that God will protect Shawn as a soldier for God and as a soldier for this country. We’re all counting down the days and weeks until he gets back!
