A quote from the book The Hiding Place has remained with me. Corrie ten Boom woke up one night and went to get a cup of tea in the kitchen. When she returned to her bed, a piece of shrapnel was laying on her pillow, where her head should have been. She asked her sister, Betsy, "what if....." Her sister said, "There are no ifs in God's World."
What a thought. There are no accidents, no surprises, no near misses. Everything I know about my God tells me He is not capricious. Every day is planned. There is a purpose, an order to our lives. It's something you and I can trust. We just need to seek Him for the grace to live out what He has lovingly and perfectly laid out ahead of us.
"He whose heart is kind beyond all measure gives unto each day what He deems best."
