I’ve been thinking a lot about how we say God gives and takes away.
We focus on how God, in his almighty power, has the right. He has the right to take what He thinks doesn’t belong out of your life. We solemnly agree. Yes, God is just.
But like, I just don’t think we’re really getting it.
God gives, man. Like, he really gives. He gives and gives and gives.
And we, all like sheep, have gone astray.
God, how have I lost sight of it?
You know it used to be, about a year or so ago, I could take my makeup off for the day and look like a child.
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I did childish things.
Now when I wake up tomorrow and I am bright-eyed and bushy tailed and decide to go natural for the day, I’ll see it. Or rather, I won’t see it. The child’s face looking back at me in the mirror.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray.
