What Time I am Afraid, I will trust in Thee

I was tempted to question God's wisdom this morning, then I recalled my blog name, Too Wonderful for Me.......and recalled Job's words when face to face with almighty God..."I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted. You asked,' Who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge?' Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know."

This morning I got a call from the American Consolate in Dubai....my son was arrested last night for drunk and disorderly conduct and assault on a police officer. I have been praying for some time that God would do whatever it takes to open the eyes of Paul's heart and bring him to a saving faith and save him from his drug and alcohol problem. Truthfully, I thought whatever it takes might be my death, but maybe not....I am praying that the Lord would use this "time out" to work in Paul's heart. He will possibly spend 2 or more months in prison there.....yes, my heart is breaking and tears are flowing, however, I am, through my tears, saying Thanks be to God who controls everything....Thanks be to God who has been faithful to protect Paul from physical harm....Thanks be to God that it was not a call telling me he had been harmed or killed.....Thanks be to God that I can trust Him with my child.....and thanks be to God that His everlasting arms are holding me during this time.
