All around me I see pain. This season seems particularly odd, with physical infirmities, terminal diseases and deaths happening all around. People I care about, people I am acquainted with in some way, are crying, seeking prayers, seeking resources, grieving, holding on to dear life, fighting to save their beloved…
And then I turn on the news and watch the aftermath of landslides in Benguet and Cebu, an earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia. And I learn of killings, and our tumultuous national politics, and rising prices, and the poorest of the poor going hungry.
In the midst of all these, I am choosing to believe:
- God is sovereign.
- God is good.
- God is God.
In time, I will understand. But even when I still can’t, I will choose to worship and trust His Holy Name.
BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! (Psalm 46:10)
