God is Sovereign

We are all grieving something- the loss of people we love, the loss of a job, the loss of income, the loss of a business we put our heart and soul into, the loss of a relationship, the loss of time with friends and family, the loss of events we were looking forward to- just to name a few. This quote sums up how I feel about the things we are grieving today.

"Sometimes we must grieve a different ending. A different ending doesn’t mean God has changed his mind about you. God is sovereign, even in our disappointment. Life doesn’t always pan out the way we hope or envision. It’s okay to grieve an unexpected ending to a season, a situation, a day, a moment that didn’t end in the way we hope or plan."
-Shelly Miller, The Sabbath Society

I am thankful for a sweet Lord that is sovereign, even in our disappointments. I am thankful that it's okay for us to grieve and be sad- as long as we don't wallow in that grief forever.

If you are grieving something today, know this:
1. It stinks and I am sorry.
2. You are not alone.
3. It's okay to grieve the things that you are missing.

4. God is still sovereign and loves you so!
