This 'n' That

So peaceful!
The past few weeks have been a dichotomous rollercoaster of stress and delight, uncertainty and hesitancy, doubt and determination. My faithfulness has ranged from unwavering gratefulness to unbecoming grumbling. It has all culminated in a great display of God's care and provision. To His glory, and to my constant awe, I have seen clearly how He has woven together events and people over a period of years as a means of caring for one of His undeserving children.

And perhaps the most stunning realization is that this God who so clearly demonstrated His care, mercy, and provision for me, is the God who created the universe. He is the God who, in the person of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, has provided a way of salvation and a way to obtain eternal life. The God who has been so wonderfully generous to us here on earth is preparing for His own a far greater future reality.
Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised,
And His greatness is unsearchable. (Psalm 145:3)
Amen and amen. With that, I hope you take some time today to enjoy your week in review (kind of):
