There are many things I want to fix. If it’s long grass, I can mow the lawn, and I don’t have to think about it for a week. A cold I treat with medicine, and I’m well within a week in most cases. Broken hearts, terminal illnesses, and the state of someone’s mind I cannot fix.
A crowd could look at the same picture, see different things, observe an accident, and tell conflicting stories. Because each upbringing is unique, we don’t see life the same. Yet, you and I think we have the answer to what needs correcting to an unwanted situation.
I prayed for the healing of my friend who passed away yesterday. I am limited in what I can do, but Jesus has limitless abilities. Because He is all-powerful, and I am sure I know what ought to happen, I apply my expectations to an all-knowing God.
57 The righteous perish,
and no one takes it to heart;
the devout are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil.
2 Those who walk uprightly
enter into peace;
they find rest as they lie in death.
Teach me, oh Lord, to trust You.
