Life can change really quickly.
I know it’s a cliche and something we say, but until that happens to us personally we don’t really feel it.
I was scheduled to be on an overseas trip for two weeks and it was unbelievable the amount of planning, preparations and prayer that went into it. And literally 2 hours and 45 minutes before I was scheduled to leave, my schedule changed. The trip was cancelled. I won’t go into the details, but it had to do with life change.
Then two days later, my wife and I learned that one of her sisters had a major brain aneurysm and is now on life support and some tough decisions may have to be made in the next couple of days.
Often plans we think we have can change pretty radically. Even in these topsy turvey situations I just described, there’s a confidence, a peace and an assurance because of Christ.
He knows what we don’t know.
He gives strength when we’re weak.
He says He will be there in the tough times and good times.
Can it knock us out of rhythm a little? Of course, but what’s constant are the promises and assurances of Jesus. I don’t know how people do it without that confidence. They flounder, they get uptight, they get anxious, they do stupid things and the list goes on. Jesus really is our rock!
