2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (The Message)
So we're not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever.
Really trying to focus on the small potatoes and think of them as french fries...even though they feel like HUGE IDAHO SPUDS! Just came from a discussion about Malone's progress and options. What we know is this...this is a long journey. A marathon of great proportion. Not a short sprint.
There are lots of things to consider and lots of decisions to make big and small.
But the greatest thing we know is this: "not a day goes by without his unfolding grace."
We have grace for today and what it brings. Grace for the good, the bad and the ugly. And as Mandy Smith has taught me to say "God is still God and God is still good."
