Just take a look at the world around us. Tsunamis, earthquakes, fires, radiation, poverty, governments, tyrants, racism, abortion. Things can look pretty grim.
With all of this around us, I think it's hard sometimes for me to remember that God is not sitting on His throne, with forehead sweat, worrying about whether or not things are gonna work out. The truth is, He's fine. He's more than fine, He is absolutely confident and certain that one day His Son, Jesus Christ, will literally destroy everything on earth that ever stood against Him, including death. And you and I will enter into a new heavens and new earth. Period. That's the story that God is accomplishing.
He started this thing. He's running this thing. He's gonna finish this thing. It's my job to trust and merge into what He's doing.
Happy Triduum everyone.
