I Trust the Captain

. . . So, we are experiencing some changes right now. Some big, some smaller, all under the complete control of our loving Lord. I sense that one season of life is ending, and another is beginning. I have never liked change, especially major ones. Change can be unsettling and is often inconvenient. But after giving Hans back to the Lord, most changes barely register on my Richter scale.

I do not know what the Lord has planned for us. We rest in knowing He is God, and that He knows what He is doing.

I began this journey without knowing all the twists and turns it might involve. But my Captain knows all. I do not need to fret or peer over His shoulder to make sure He is on the right course. I am just along for the ride wherever He takes me.

I trust the Captain because I know Him. And He knows me.

This is peace.

  1. Before my brother died, quite young like your precious Hans, Paul said, “I know full well that my life is in the hands of the Lord. He has the keys to the car, and I’m going along for the ride…”
    Thank you sister, for this beautiful and encouraging post. ⚘

    1. So true, Ann. For me, it seems easier to submit to big things that are definitely not under my control, like death and natural disasters. It gets trickier with the smaller stuff that gives me an opportunity to manipulate or interfere rather than wait on God. We can operate under the illusion that God needs our help to make things work out. It’s easy to think we always have to DO something.
