It has been a strange, strange life. I don't really know what to think any more. I have a great family and a good job at this answering service. I have to drive too far, but it pays the bills and I like what I do. But it seems like everywhere I turn around there is pain. I see too much cancer in my family. I see too many families broken and hurting. I know that God is in control, but it is hard sometimes to reconcile that with what I see going on around me.
But, I do know that I can trust my God. He has been faithful, and I know that He can work everything for good, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I just don't really want to think about that right now. In the midst of the pain, I don't want to think about all of the great things that God has done in my life or in the lives around me. Even in times of great pain, God can be present and helping us to grow, bringing joy and peace. Yep, no matter my circumstances, I am glad that I know that I can count on my God.
