It was so strange today. I woke with an elephant in each ear. Lovely. I had expected to be better. I got worse.
Then I began to ponder how often that happens. Rather often! Disappointments are very common in our lives. We want one thing and get something else entirely.
Just as I was settling into a defeatist mood, I read Joni Eareckson Tada's devotion for today where she quoted this: Only be careful and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen. (Deuteronomy 4:9)
Well amen to that! I have seen God's hand at work as recently as this morning. That the elephants have not yet moved on should have nothing to do with the fact that I have seen with my two eyes and heard with my own two ears (just barely ☺) that He is at work—always! I can trust Him.
