Too Wonderful


2 Thessalonians 2-3, Job 39-42

Job 42:3 – Therefore, I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I do not know.

Lord God, your ways are not my ways, your thoughts are not my thoughts.  They are higher from me than the heavens are above the earth.  But I wish they were closer!  I see things happening in my life that I don’t get.  I experience things in my life that I don’t know.  I find myself grumbling against the circumstances and so even against you for what you’re giving in my life.  I’m talking like a donkey.  I don’t know what I’m talking about.  Forgive me.  Your ways and your plans and your works are always good.  They have always been; your track record proves it.  They always will be.  Teach me to be content and joyful no matter what the day brings. Give me joy and content to say with Job as his story began in this book – The Lord gave and the Lord took away; may the name of the Lord be praised.  Teach me to praise you, even in the storm.  Amen.
