OK, I know Jason is not God. Nevertheless there are similarities between how we had to trust Jason and how I need to trust God. Jason was here for a couple days and was frequently in the inner bowels of that mysterious little closet holding our computer servers. He usually came out with a pleasant look on his face which perplexed me a bit. I’m used to having a clue about what people are up to. Even in things like auto work with all its computerized parts, usually I am only removed a few steps from some sort of understanding. Not in this. He and Mrs. Noble have used more words I’ve never heard before in the past few days than I remember in recent history. Though I really don’t get it, I trust they are making progress. And you know what, just before lunch they told us we are almost restored to where we should be.
God does things in each of our lives. I don’t get it sometimes, He goes into the depths of my life and adjusts things. Sometimes I don’t like it, I don’t know what he is doing. He comes out of making adjustments in my life with some sort of look of love on His face, and I am perplexed. He uses events that I don’t understand. Though I don’t get it I trust He is making progress. Sometimes He reveals what He was up to, other times I will need to wait to understand. In the end, He will not just restore, He will far surpass anything I could imagine.
Thanks, Jason, for the reminder to trust in the Lord. Mary sure had to trust during that original Advent. Some things don’t change. Jesus I trust in You, help us to do so well.
