What’s going to happen?

I heard a father describe a game his young son likes to play.

The young boy standing on the couch will cry out to him in glee, “What’s going to happen?  What’s going to happen?”  Then he falls on the couch and laughs and laughs.

Often, we like this young boy play this kind of game, but it is not a game, but our manner of life.  The tragic thing is many are not falling on a soft and cushioned landing spot, but rather falling forward into the future with a sense of uncertainty.  

However, as the children of God, we can live with this same sort of joy pictured with this boy.

We know we live under our father’s loving eyes and trust that whatever does happen, there will be grace, strength, and His presence will cushion our falls.

What’s going to happen?

We can proceed through this year in a childlike peace and even joy.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”  Romans 8:28

In Him, By Him, Through Him,
