A Sovereign Author
Uncategorized

You have a sovereign author who writes the chapters of your life. These words are both comforting and perplexing to me. Comforting because of the reality that God is infinitely sovereign. Yet perplexing, because my finite mind cannot fully comprehend God’s sovereignty. Each weekday morning when dropping off our three sons at school, Kara and I share this statement, “Remember who you are and whose you are today!” Often we receive an eye roll response, “Dad/Mom, I know.” Apparently Fresh …
