I'm joining Sandra for this link party over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
It's overcast and cloudy, cool at 56º with 9 mph winds. High humidity though. I'm headed out
for a walk in a half hour.
As I look outside my window:::
Thinking and pondering:::
"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!" (Romans 11:33)
Praying about and pondering some situations I'm having difficulty understanding. It reminds me about the godly wisdom of Elizabeth George when she says of Romans 11:33 that we can take every inexplicable situation in life and file each one in between the "bookends" of God's wisdom and God's knowledge.
She wrote in Loving God with All Your Mind: "We must accept in faith that the events of our lives are accomplishing something in God's plan for us and for His world. He is at work and in control of our universe and our lives, and He has His reasons, which are un-understandable, unsearchable, inscrutable, inexhaustible, unfathomable, and impossible to grasp. The reasons behind His decisions remain in the realm of God, and you and I must rest in the knowledge that they are His domain, not ours.Therefore, we probably won't understand the how's and the why's on this side of heaven."
There are four chapters of the book dealing with this verse! What a blessing for handling the inexplicable situations of our lives. This should be required reading for every believer.
On my bedside table:::
A lamp, three books, a pen and a jar of lavender-infused oil for helping with insect bites.
