So the last several days have been fairly ... chaotic.
Finances have been extremely tight lately due to some trouble with our biggest client and the inability to get our taxes done. We had a WVIHOP intern move in with us, and expected to have a second one arrive this past Sunday. Having the intern here brought about some contention from my side of the family sadly. A couple that we are good friends with went through a major family crisis, which had the potential to send shock waves through our lives.
And then we woke up to this sight this morning ...
It seems that an ice storm went through last night!
We haven't lost power yet, but even as I type this the lights are flickering. We are expecting to lose it any time with the heavy winds predicted tonight.
We heard a really good message on Friday night at WVIHOP and it applies to everything we've been going through the past couple weeks. We cannot be offended at God. His plans are perfect, no matter how little sense they make to us at the time. Crisis tends to either draw us close or make us run away angry from the Lord. We need to choose to draw close not shake our fist at Heaven. I have been doing my share of fist shaking lately, but now I realize that God wants me to be close in these crises.
God is good, all the time. No matter what.
