This weekend, I was faced with a situation I don’t understand. I’m not sure I ever will but as I talked with God about my confusion, He whispered, “I’ve got this.”
As I sit here this morning with my little brown dog and the strongest coffee I can make, God gives me the word: acceptance.
God helps me realize we are not made to understand everything. I am gradually starting to see how acceptance in such situations is so important. In prayer, if not guided to change the situation, acceptance and trust in God is where we can find peace.
God grants us free will. I could start my week confused and upset or I can start my week in peace. Thanking God for having this situation in His loving hands. It might be a long time before understanding is revealed to me. God will determine when and where that will take place.
My prayer for us is not to get stuck on what we cannot understand. Talk with God about such issues and ask for guidance and ask God to reveal anything we might be missing. Ask God if there is anything in this situation He wants us to do or say.
If in prayer, you see you are doing all you can do, ask God for the peace of acceptance and thank God for whispering, “I’ve got this.” Which reminds me of being a little guy in Sunday school learning, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.”
“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”
– Psalm 19: 14
