Have you ever thought one scenario was playing out one way and it looked like disaster and you couldn't imagine any good outlook at all? After all, doesn't A lead to B and added together get C?
I have to tell you that I always thought I had good logic. I was at that family camp I talk about, CFO. It was day one. Every year I would run into strong spiritual opposition because I was going to praise God and learn new lessons and get a fresh start. So on this day, I remembered some bugs that were on the counter and one or two on the floor when I left. Suddenly they came into my head and I was sure we had termites. Hadn't I heard funny noises near the outside wall of our bedroom? I even called my husband to see if he noticed anything. I couldn't get through and we didn't have a message system then. I truly got myself worked up. A friend came to my room and I described my bugs. She said they sounded like earwigs, not great, but not house destroyers either. The rest of the week was fine.
Another time I was alone with the children at a day care center and I saw what I was sure was impetigo on a child's face. I'd seen it before. I mentioned it to her father. He took her to the doctor and found it was a booger on her face. How embarrassed was I next day?
One last story. I was sure my baby grandson had a sty on his eye. Oh, no and I had touched his face and I was facing eye surgery next day. Oh, no. Later, the "sty" was on top of his eye and not on the bottom. Oops. End of my playing doctor.
I give you these silly stories because the Lord actually whispered to me on the last one, it's not what you think. Many times I am so worried. I am sure I have all the facts. Only God has all the facts. Next time I think I have A and B so that must equal C, I'm going to go straight to Him and ask for the whole story. I should even take what I don't know on faith and be trusting until the thing plays out, one way or another.
