I am getting better at recognizing the Lord’s control of all events. Most of the time I can see it, but sometimes it is difficult. Sometimes when I face a hardship it can be difficult to see how God could have been in control of it. It is not that I expect everything in my life to be smooth sailing, but when something difficult happens I think I want to see how somehow the bad situation worked out well, with some sort of silver lining. When that does not appear to be the case, I fall into the trap of wondering why I was struggling in the first place. This week’s lesson helped me to see that I need to not spend so much time questioning why things in my life happen, but rather that God is in the center of it no matter what. When I think about that it gives me comfort.
