This last weekend I got to spend lots of time with my roommate Claire. We laughed, talked, did ridiculous things, tried to do homework, and listened to lots of music. We blasted country music (because Makenna wasn't home and she hates country music!) and shared our favorite worship songs. Claire played a song for me by Chris Tomlin that so perfectly describes what God has been constantly reminding me of the last few weeks. As I think about graduating soon (like in 102 days soon!), where I am moving for the summer, and what I am doing next year, God has given me a peace that surpasses all understanding in knowing that he is SOVEREIGN. He is before and above all things. He is all-knowing. Every time I begin to fret about finding a job, making a career choice, or even just paying for groceries, God whispers to me "Trust Me, child". TRUST. ME. CHILD. The detail-oriented, list-making, planner in me goes a little crazy but is able to take a deep breath at the same time. This song says "In your everlasting arms, all the pieces of my life, from beginning to the end, I can trust you." As I've been praying for this semester and this year and what will happen after graduation, there is nothing I can do but trust God. Claire and I were talking over dinner one night and she reminded me that we are loved by the God who moves mountains why wouldn't we trust him? Ain't that the truth. I have not be able to stop listening to this song since I heard it on Saturday and love it because it so perfectly describes where I am right now. We serve a God who is GREATER than the unknown. A God who is working now for things that are going to happen in the future. Each day I have to trust him. "God whatever comes my way, I will trust you." When Claire told me it was a Chris Tomlin, I was a little surprised I had never heard it before, but I know that I did hear at the exact time I needed to. God has been reminding me each day that is sovereign over all. May you find peace in this incredible truth today.
