G’morning again!

Another day rolls by. Sometimes it’s amazing to stop and think about my present situation. I am amazed at two things.

(1) That God is so great in His creative and intellectual faculties that He is able to conceive of such an intricate plan for the universe that involves all of the humans throughout history. This brings to mind a line out of Fiddler on the Roof where Tevia bemoans his poverty and askes God “Would it spoil some vast eternal plan if I were a wealthy man?” The answer…yes! God’s plan is so intricate and perfect that anything different from the way God has planned it would spoil it. God has a wonderful plan, but that plan is not wonderful for every individual. Sometimes that plan is very hard for people. But in the end, it all works together for good.

(2) That God has chosen to bless me and make all things work together for my good (Romans 8:28)! Of all the people in the world, why would He pick a disorganized, distracted, sinful slob like me? Amazing grace, yes? Yes!

Well, the wedding plans are coming together, but I’m much less bright and oragnized than God, so the plans are quite a bit more difficult for me to pull off. But the days are steadily decreasing, and I’m getting excited not only to get married, but also to see good friends that I haven’t seen for a few months. Marriage will be fun, I’m sure it’ll be difficult too, but the best things in life often are also the most difficult.

Anyway, that’s all for this hour, I’ve gotta get back to work. I’m taking lunch off a little early to pick up a dresser I bought at Value Village. It wouldn’t fit in my little Civic, so I’m borrowing my brother’s car to grab it. It’s nice! I also grabbed a free computer desk from the side of the road yesterday, God is good!!

Pray for me,

Matthew
