Life is constantly in flux.
That is the only guarantee I have learned life carries with it.
Yet, as life fluxes and changes – God stands beautifully supreme. Don’t you see the beauty behind that? I do.
Sometimes things happen and you wonder where God is in it. Sometimes these things happen and your pride and selfishness look at a situation and only sees your pain, your brokenness and how this has affected you. Is it unwarranted? No, but we lose sight of the notion that God stands beautifully supreme.
I haven’t arrived on this journey of understanding just what exactly God standing beautifully supreme means, but the last week has given me the chance to test it out. I didn’t choose to be tested in this or even to be thrown into this but wallowing in my own pain and frustration doesn’t change the situation.
There is a flip side though. Sometimes, when these situations are thrown at you, you forget to grieve what you may have lost. Grieving is perfectly appropriate. Don’t believe me, go read the Psalms or maybe the book of Lamentations or for that matter some of the prophets get pretty emo too – after all what is the deal with all that sackcloth and ashes? Grieving is perfectly fine for a season – think about it, we live in a fallen world where what God intended and created the world to be does not always happen.
These are all things God did not intend for the world. When they happen, in whatever form they happen in – grieving is appropriate.
I’m in that season.
But, I know that God stands beautifully supreme…
Where is it in your life that God needs to stand beautifully supreme?
