If Josiah was having a difficult day, and I asked him how he was doing, he’d usually think, take a breath, smile, and say something like, “Well, today is difficult… but God is good.”
I always liked that. Honesty about life’s difficulties. Honesty about the reality of God’s character through it all.
Yes, life is sometimes difficult, but even more affirmative is the truth that God is good through it all.
I’ve had a nasty cold for over two weeks now. I hate summer colds. While everyone else is having an awesome time enjoying the weather, I’m stuck indoors sweating and hacking up my lungs while trying to keep the snot where it belongs. I’d like to go on, but you all know what it’s like.
