Secret Things Belong to the Lord

Tonight at church our pastor talked about the "d" word ~ divorce. It was helpful, even for those of us who are happily married. One thing he said that caught my attention was, "Committment in marriage means being willing to be unhappy until we work it out." That's helpful to me right now ~ I'm in one of those "unhappy until we work it out" places. It has to do with what the future holds for us in the coming years...the future seems uncertain and feels flimsy right now.

Then when we got home from a nice dinner out at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, I read that "Secret things belong to the Lord (Deut 29:29) and future things are secret things." It turns out that when I try and figure out the future, it is an act of rebellion ~ doubting God's promise to care for me. What I should be doing is to relax and enjoy the journey, trusting God to open up the way before me as I go.

Lots to think about...any thoughts you'd like to share?
