A week ago today I was feeling rather low. I even blogged about it I was feeling so bad.
Then, one blessing after another flowed into my life in unexpected ways.
I got good news.
A check came in the mail.
And by sheer Providence, I got to meet Temple Grandin and interview her face to face for a full 45 minutes!
45 minutes, people! 45 minutes! ME!
Why? Because the other media failed to show up. So there I was, at the media meet and greet and it was just Temple and me, shootin’ the breeze about everything from autism to chickens to Australia.
I will be writing a series of articles on Temple and will share them with you as I get them published. There is a preliminary article here: Exclusive: Temple Grandin named Manchester University Innovator of the Year.
If you read last week’s post, you know that I had a talk with the Lord and He assured me I could trust Him with my life and I agreed to put it in His hands. (Why I keep taking it back as if I have a better idea than God remains a mystery. I’m fallible. And badly in need of a merciful God.)
I guess more than I agreed to trust Him was that I agreed to stop fretting. I had to make myself rest in His assurance that He was in control and everything was going to be fine.
And then this happened.
I’m so glad I can trust Him even when it doesn’t make sense.
This trust thing isn’t just for me. It’s for anyone who’s willing to rest in Him. Give it a try. You’ll be amazed at the things God has in store for you.
