Life is unpredictable. (Isn’t that the understatement of the year?) Despite all of my organization, I’ll never be prepared for everything. If I could plan for every possible snag along the way, then I’d think pretty highly of myself.

However, I’ve experienced enough to know that there are plenty of unscripted moments. I couldn’t predict the trials that I have faced, and they have driven me to my knees in prayer. I have been reminded time and again to trust in the Triune God and His unfailing promises. God tells me that He will never leave me nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5c). My times are in His hands (Psalm 31). He will never give me more than I can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13).

And so I offer a simple prayer: Thank you, God, for taking care of me. Amen.
