There’s a song I learned in childhood about the sovereignty of God. “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” It’s easy to sing. We believe it on paper. We teach it to our children. But in the depths of our hearts, there is a question that gnaws.

Does He have mine?

There is a lot at stake in this question, because if the answer is yes — like a true and resounding yes — then everything is truly going to be okay.  It’s not that we won’t have trouble, but God promises that somehow we can have rest in the midst of it.

My life tends to remain at rest when I realize my world is in God’s hands.

This blog is a place to take a deep breath and come back to the richness of this reality. If this resonates in your soul and you could use encouragement, I’d love for you to join me.
