The Latest News You Didn’t Hear

I have been unable to blog these past few weeks. I hope to explain why in my next post.  For now, a post from Acts 4.

Recently, Orlando’s news included the needless shooting death of Christina Grimmie.  Christiana was, by everyone’s estimation, set to become the next vocal superstar.  Then, roughly twenty-four hours after Grimmie’s death, a gunman walked into the Pulse Nightclub and ended the lives of 49 people.  Then, a few days later, a mother and a father were lounging on a beach while their two-year old son played in a mere foot of water when an alligator attacked and killed him.  Unthinkable – Tragedy!

The Plan

 

If you are at all like me, sometimes you struggle with the plans of God.  Bottom line….  I struggle because I think I have a better plan.  Isn’t that what it all comes down to?
