I feel like this hymn really speaks to me, especially these days. I have worked so hard doing the strict quarantine thing to keep us safe–but the reality is, I don’t really control very much. That’s such a hard concept to grasp, because it seems like, at least in a normal life, that I control so much, and I would be criminally negligent if I didn’t frantically do all this stuff. But on some level, I recognize I control a lot less than I think I do, and I am sure I would be happier, even now, if I remember what this hymn teaches me. Seems like that would be a whole lot more peaceful way to live.
May you experience a deep peace and comfort through the times ahead.
