NONE OF US KNOW

NONE OF US KNOW
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

None of us know what this day will hold but God alone.
In a few short hours I will have interaction with my beloved "client" who has only just learned, this weekend, of my approaching departure, which is to be this Friday.
The Reader will perhaps wonder why my client wasn't informed earlier of this monumental decision, and so I put forth some reasoning for review:
 The family and not the caregiver discerns and makes notable news "forecasts" to the individual receiving care.
Since my departure is expected to profoundly impact my client's "state," the decision to hold-off on the news was determined to be one week in advance and not before.
Whether I agree or disagree on the handling of this particular matter,
The decisions aren't mine to make.
I don't call the shots.
I abide by them.

None of us know what this day will hold but God alone:
He calls the shots,
We simply abide by them and choose our responses accordingly.
We may not understand all of His word or even agree with all of His word,
But that's irrelevant.
We are given God's word in order that we might obey it.
 What follows isn't up to us.
Our comfort lies in the knowledge that "all" of our unknowns are fully known to God.
God is good.
God is faithful.
God is loving.
And this is what we must know and remember in our unknowns.
