From each season emerges a new side of God… Sarah Hagerty
I do believe this to be true. However, like I do too often, I make it about me; how am I changing, how does this impact MY life. I forget this is about God, and that He is allowing me to know Him better.
What an honor, what a blessing, that I almost missed because it’s wrapped in struggle, in lack of control, in impatience.
I can’t yet figure out what God is revealing about himself, or our relationship. Perhaps it is intricately woven with how much of myself I am willing to let go, how uncomfortable I will get.
He allows suffering and discontent and confusion, but he promises great joy and an understanding of the tapestry (one day).
You do not realize what I am doing, but one day you will understand. – John 13:7
God is in control. The creator of the universe that changes the wind, changes my season to force me closer to Him. Bends the tide so I must hold his hand, and it is gentle and sweet amidst my internal chaos.
Perhaps that’s the take away today: you can be in control and gentle…
After all the greek definition of gentleness is power under control, and if that doesn’t sum up my God I don’t know what does.
