Gentleness Lately: Reckoning
Reckoning: a settling of accounts
It can be hard to believe God cares about us on the macro and micro level when experiencing pain or sorrow.
Let’s not pretend it is always easy or makes sense to believe the truth.
Faith calls us to trust in the unimaginable.
We hope for what we do not see.
We try to take into account our feelings, scripture readings, experiences, and testimonies.
reckon with it all
Yet sometimes I let it fall,
all the counting, collecting, summarizing throughout the day.
And rest or wait
and ask to be hidden in Him.
