There is an ebb and flow to the life that God has given us. All things are set to the beat of a cosmic symphony which God is holding in time. Children become teenagers, teenagers because married, married people become parents, parents become grandparents, and on it goes. We grow up, we're strong, we age, we mature, we grow weak, we die. There are times when every person will mourn, and times when we will rejoice. There are times when the air we breath is sweet with the joy of living, and other times when each breath is a struggle. There are times when we have plenty and times when we have barely enough. These are the things that happen to all of us. All of us. Every person. We can fight these things, resent them, kick against them...but they come. How much better for us if we embrace the day, dancing to the rhythm God has set? How much better to ask God to see us through our current situation, than to ask him to stop the symphony? How much better to thank God for going with us, than to doubt him for not keeping things in our tempo? Father, grant me the ears to hear the soft rhythm. Grant me the feet to keep in step with your timing.
