I suppose it’s somewhat ironic that when I blogged about the saying, “It’s all good,” here, life as I know it … changed.
In some respects, things are still the same. I usually get up at about the same time and go to bed about the same time. In other ways, life is completely different.
Part of what I said in that post:
“It’s all good,” is shorthand-speak for:
- “I understand what you said and I get it.”
- “I forgive you. We can move on.”
- “Yes, that was bad, but it’s not the end of the world. God is sovereign and it will work out.”
- “It may not be good now, but it will be, and I have faith.”
Of those options, the one I believe most fervently this week is, “It may not be good now, but it will be and I have faith.”
Actually, I would add a qualifier: “It may not be good now — and it may not be good for a really, really long time — but I have to believe it (whatever ‘it’ is) will be good again. Someday.
