One of my favourite songs is the well known hymn ‘this is my Fathers world’. It tells me that no matter what He is in control!
It does not always feel that way…. the week started out with me being stuck in France for a day due to a cancelled flight. The plane had something wrong with its software and was not cleared to fly. I arrived a day later at my destination Costa Rica. And that while my work is so busy… a day makes a difference!
On Wednesday England lost the semi final football game to Croatia… I am not a football fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I also got swept up in the hype and the ‘catch phrase’: it’s coming home! Instead we get to support either France or Croatia in the finals… and England gets to wait another 4 years..
My back is slowly getting better…
and on Friday it was the 13th… not that I am superstitious, but don’t you sometimes wonder? And avoid black cats?
That’s when that song comes back in my thoughts… the last couple sentences are as follows:
This is my Father’s world:
why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
God reigns; let the earth be glad!
And that is exactly what I am doing…. be glad!! Enjoy nature… He is in control!!
This is my fathers world, oh let me ner(never) forget, that though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet!! …..
