That may have a little humor in it, but the opposite is actually true. We DO have control over it—maybe not the little details of every single thing, but we can turn our lives over to the Lord of life. We don’t have to depend on fate! We can—and should—trust God.
Following the will of God is not always an easy thing to do. In fact, sometimes it can be very, very difficult. God doesn’t drop down from heaven a blueprint or roadmap, detailing every second of our future. Instead, we have to trust Him to lead us and follow Him the best we can based on what He has shown us in circumstances, prayer and Bible study.
That is what we see at work in the lives of the Hudson Family. So as we say “goodbye” to Tiny, Felicia and Corban, we are acknowledging that God has spoken and moved in their lives to lead them into another chapter and opportunity for greater service. We commit to continue to pray for them and we wish God’s best for them. But it’s also a good reminder that God is still in charge and that each of us can turn his or her life over to Him.
