In the summary chapter, many of the truths are restated and this quote from the book really spoke to me this week.
When the sun is shining and you have money in the bank and you're healthy and everyone thinks you're wonderful, it's not hard to believe that God is good. But when you lose your job . . ., the enemy will move in and cause you to question God's goodness. The Truth is, regardless of the circumstances, regardless of what we feel, regardless of what we think, God is good, and everything He does is good.
There were other examples in this paragraph of difficult circumstances, but the one about the job jumped out at me as a simple reminder that God is in control as we are in our seventh month since Robbie's job ended due to the successful sale of the company where he was working as the CFO. Most days we are at peace with the job searching and waiting for God's will in our lives, but it helps to be reminded that God is still in control in everything.
You are good, and what You do is good;
teach me Your decrees.
