God is Good
I'm drained. For myself and my (extended) family, these last few days have been hectic. For the last four days, it's been one thing after another after another. I had been averaging somewhere between 3 and 4 hours of sleep a night. Add to that the utter emotional exhaustion from all of these draining situations...life hasn't been too grand.
But God is still in control. Throughout it all, He's still there. I might not always like His plan or how things are going, but it's His plan. I take solace and comfort in the fact that He knows better than I do. I'm reminded of Jeremiah 29:11, one of those verses that's taken out of context way too often. God's plan for His people is a good one, but it's a bumpy and often painful journey. I know that's what I've been feeling these last few days, and I know I'm not alone in that boat. Throughout it all, though, I have to say that God is Good.
