Short blog tonite. I found this on Pinterest (what did I ever do before Pinterest?!??!) and thought it was rather profound:
That just sums it all up for me. I choose to live my life in the belief that luck doesn’t exist. When good things happen, it is because there is a loving, Living God who actively cares for his children. Good things that happen are gifts from a benevolent father.
I know there are lots of questions that can be asked in opposition to this stance. I don’t always have answers for those questions. But at the end of the day, I am not too worried about that.
I believe in grace, in mercy and in love. I believe Jesus lived and died for these things. I believe that Lent is a time to remember that and to think deeply about it.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17 NIV
