“For what advantage has the wise man over the fool [being worldly-wise is not the secret to happiness]? What advantage has the poor man who has learned how to walk before the living [publicly, with men’s eyes upon him; being poor is not the secret to happiness either]? Better is the sight of the eyes [the enjoyment of what is available to one] than the cravings of wandering desire. This is also vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility) and a striving after the wind and a feeding on it!” Ecclesiastes 6:8-9 ->me: Today was a looonnnngg day. First we missed our flight to SoCal this morning (10:20am departure | we tried to drop our bags at 9:35am and they said we missed the cutoff). Ok, so now we are now on the 12:10pm flight. Well, because the Blue Angels had taken up airspace restrictions because of the weather our 12:10pm flight was delayed until 2:50pm. Why am I telling you all of this?…because this would normally send me through the roof. I would have been angry, frustrated, bitter, and a total bear to be with; but not today. The Lord brought a peace over me from the moment they said we missed our flight. I just knew that there was some reason this needed to happen today. We actually had a nice time and because we wore Prim out she pretty much just slept on me most of the trip. God is good. Through Ecclesiastes the Lord is reinforcing the need for me to depend on Him to be the all in all in my life. Today was a great day only because I finally get that He is in control and what happened…happened because He allowed it to happen.
