Oh the drama. My world was coming to an end, and I can’t even remember why. What I do remember is crying out to the Lord as a very young Christ follower. I prayed, “If I ever have a daughter, please allow us to get along well while she lives at home, and please don’t let her struggle with weight or body image.”
If there ever was a person who lived life to the full in the midst of suffering, it was my wife of almost 53 years, Janelle Green. She used to say, “You can see more through a windshield than you can through a rear view mirror.”
We know the truth. We’ve memorized the Sunday School answer: God issovereign. He created us perfectly to do things He planned for us alone, and He intends for us to change the world right where we are. I wonder, though, do we spend enough time appreciating what that change looks like day in and day out?
