God is in control

It's as simple as the title today.

Ever feel like God's moving and shaking things around you? Chances are, He is. And He's doing it to get your attention.

Lately I've felt the pull away of many things dear to me, and I'm not quite sure what God's doing. But I do know this. Always, He is in control. He has a plan. And while there's sadness in change, I'm madly in love with Him and ready for wherever He's taking me.

So I'd planned on writing a blog on this whole feeling of overwhelmingness and God's faithfulness through it, but--believe it or not--my computer crashed this weekend taking many of my files with it. While I'm waiting to see if I get them back or not, this simple blog today will have to do.

God is in control:)


  1. Yikes! Sorry about your files. I can sooooo relate! But God IS in control! That attitude will get you far and peacefully! :) Hope you get them back.

  2. Sorry about your computer trouble, Susan. :( Hope you're able to get things straightened out.

    I was just reading today about God being in control in my NLT study Bible (Romans 9:5-24). The commentary says, "The contemporary world has set God to the side and ignores the divine influence on the course of human affairs. But God's decisions really do direct the world as well as the personal histories of those who trust him. We can continually affirm that "God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them" (Romans 8:28).

    It is so important to remember this when we're feeling overwhelmed (and all of the time!).

    I pray that you're having a blessed day, Susan!

  3. Love that passage, thanks Michelle. And I've been working on that attitude these past few days. My computer is back and files are here too - thanks Dad!

  4. So glad you got your computer fixed and your files back! That's great news. : )
