God is in Control
I have been thinking a lot about the Sovereignty of God. When we just look at the things going on around us we can sometimes get overwhelmed. However, if we stop and look at the big picture, the overall plan, it can be comforting, if we look at it in the scheme of God's greater plan. If God is in control of everything and nothing happens that he does not allow to happen then we begin to look at things in a little different way. Yes, bad things happen in this world. The Lord Yeshua/Jesus never told us he came to make the world perfect. He came to show us that if we truly want to follow him and be his disciple then we are to become part of his kingdom, which is completely separate from this world.
