Does God really know what’s best?
Whenever I feel my faith flagging,God sends a sign to show He cares – the most recent one being on the 13th of November. Then again yesterday He sent a small reminder : Anna Shetty called home frantically to tell us that an errant taxi driver had bumped off her bumper. Now she was returning home from a night call and was quite harried so even though Jacob’s Circle is one of those chaotic junctions where 7 arterial roads radiate from, always choc-a-bloc full with all kinds of traffic – vehicular and otherwise – and the bumper was hanging by a rusty nail, this was one incident we could have all done without.
Mr. Cool, our driver, quietly took the car to the neighbourhood mechanic and got the problem attended to. While the bumper turned out to be a minor job, what actually took the better part of our budget was the clutch plate which it seems was ready to be replaced. So it was just providential that the car needed to go to a mechanic or else Anna Shetty would have been in a bigger soup with a car that refused to start in the middle of the night on a crowded road!!!
Show me the Good !
But Lord, I want to ask you where is the good for me? – what am I going to get out of four years of living in anguish? Four years of sleepless nights? Four years of slowly watching my health go to hell? Four years of watching the other members in my house slowly watch me go crazy? Four years of people deceit, lying , plotting and conniving? Where is the good in having my family slowly disintegrating?
Dear God please help me to find what is good in this for because I am blind and just cannot see.
