God Is God

And I am not.
Pretty simple to grasp.
Extremely hard to implement.

This week my Grandma, who will be 90 on the 21st, had a massive hemorrhage in her brain.
I gotta tell you. I am scared. Not that she will die. I am afraid that she won't. And that she won't recover. And that she will be stuck indefinitely in a body that no longer functions. That she will be tied to this earth, not freed to be with our Savior at her wedding feast.

I was talking to my friend, Kelly, yesterday and she reminded me that God is always in control. I love the way she put it.
"God did not get up on Tuesday morning and take roll. "Mary? Mary? Mary Higgins? No Mary? Well, I wonder where she is?'"
Of course He didn't. Of course He knows when she will be making it home.
Because He is God, and I am not.
God thing, too.

She will never be trapped. God loves her and wants her with him. He will not deprive her of his promise to her. He also loves all who love her, there is a reason she is still here.

What deep thoughts this Tuesday. Thanks for sharing. I find that I sometimes too forget that in the end he is in control of all things. I appreciate the reminder.

It sounds like you are friends with Ugly, too. But, also, you uphold the truth. And in that is Beauty. Praying for you and your whole family...

Sorry to hear about your Grandma. May she either make a full recovery or go home. Thinking of you!
