He's God. And I'm Not.


I've noticed over the years that many time friends "steal" quotes from my blog and post them as their Facebook status for the day... Tonight, I'm going post a quote that I "stole" from my sister, Jemima, who recently posted it on Facebook.... :)



"Tonight, my soul, be still and sleep
The storms are raging on the deep -- God's deep, not yours --
Be still and sleep.
... God's heaven will comfort those who weep -- God's heaven, not yours --
Be still and sleep."


How glad I am.

The world's problems are not for me to solve tonight.

They are for God, in His Almighty wisdom and Infinite power to take care of.

He can change hearts. I can't.

And "all His works are done in truth and righteousness."

He never misjudges a situation.

He's God. And I'm not.

I'm so glad.
