A Fortunate Friday

carry out or dine in?

Wasn’t planning to post today. This is too good not to share.

Rode my bike to run errands this morning. Stopped by a favorite Chinese restaurant for lunch.

This week has been stressful. Changes are afoot. Biking and solitary dining on Chinese food were in order.

Must say I don’t believe in luck. There are no coincidences. Yes, I remember the episode with the four-leaf clover. But who put it there in the first place?

Nothing, no matter how good or bad, is outside God’s control and knowledge. God loves us and is always working around us to redeem us. He holds our very lives in His hands.

There are days I struggle with this. I don’t understand. It is beyond me. How could God be in control? What is He doing?

Then I catch a glimpse of His care. He reminds me of His goodness in simple ways I can understand. No big production. No thunderbolts. Just small, quiet moments to comprehend the incomprehensible.

At the end of my meal, the token fortune cookie appeared on the table with the bill. Look what was inside.

in the palm of my hand

Something wonderful is about to happen to you.

Many things already have.

Look around. Be open to see the good in your life. And remember who put it there.

The LORD gives strength to his people;
the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11 NIV

Aaron Shust sings My Hope is in You. Lord, may it be so for me too. Amen.
