And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” -Luke 10:41-42

God's sovereignty, Jonah, and other babblings.....
I was reading another entry someone had written today, on the Proverbs 31 woman website. The author made the point that God was doing a good thing for Jonah when he caused a fish to swallow him; he kept him from drowning. I honestly had never thought of it like that before. Then I thought about my life, and how I have identified with Jonah's failings, and it really put my past trials and difficulties in a different light. I'm still new to this idea of divine providence and the idea of God's sovereignty, but more and more I am finding it to be a great comfort. I know that I don't run my life so well sometimes; what a relief that I don't have to run the universe for Him either. The idea that God can cause ALL things to work for my good, even hard things, is a powerful thought.
