In the Hand of God
In the Hand of God
He is in my tomorrows
Last night Kristen text me after I had went to bed describing what she was seeing on her flight to Europe. For me, it was Monday evening. For her, it was Tuesday morning. She told me how she had watched the sun set beneath the clouds, about a star filled sky above the Atlantic, and how she was watching the sunrise as she flew over Ireland. As I laid there thinking about how blessed she was to see such beauty, I realized that she was in tomorrow.
I found myself in tears. Granted, I find myself in tears a lot right now, but this was diffferent. I’ve always heard that God is in my tomorrows, but what does that mean? I don’t know how to wrap my head around that. But there I lay in bed texting my daughter as she soared above the earth, already in tomorrow, as I lay in a dark room in my today. Suddenly I was reminded that God is always in my tomorrow. There’s nothing there that He has not already seen.
Tomorrow may catch me by surprise. It might bring wonderful news, amazing beauty, or moments of pure joy. Tomorrow May hold more sorrow than I can possibly add to my plate right now. It may hold dungeons of darkness or deep pits of pain. But whatever tomorrow holds, God is already there. The creator of the sunsets and the sunrises, the maker of the stars and the oceans, holds my tomorrow in His hand.
As I write this, Kristen is in the wee hours of tomorrow. As the morning wakes her in Germany, God is with her at the same time He is here with me in her yesterday. Although it still is a little hard to wrap my head around, He is teaching me here while she learns more there. He is showing me that this painful place I find myself in tonight is comparable to where I found myself a decade ago, but this time I have community to walk it with me. He is using the painful places in my heart as a place for the words to once again learn how to flow and heal my heart…and maybe the hearts of others.
Whatever your tomorrow holds, know that He is already there. He really does have the whole world in His hands. And in the hand of God is the best place I can think of to be.
