God Knows
“But God can only smile because only God can know what is coming next.”  
Desmond Tutu (1931-2021) 1st South African Anglican bishop and theologian; Human Rights leader

Things happen so fast. In a moment we are celebrating, and in the next we are mourning. In a moment we are at our peak of health, and in the next we are fighting to stay alive. In a moment, we are working and providing for our family, and in the next we’re standing in the unemployment line. We don’t know when these things could happen, but we know that they can… and they do. But in the midst of it, there is a smile on God’s face. He sees all things from start to finish. He sees us when we’re caught off guard, caught in the middle, and uncertain about what’s coming next. He has comfort, healing, restoration and whatever else we’re in need of in His hands, and He won’t delay in taking care of us. We may not know what is coming next, but if we know that God does – we can smile, too.
Psalm 39:7 (NLT) And so Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.
