I was having a conversation with a friend last week and we started sitting on this topic.
Is God really in control of everything in this broken world?
I know He CAN be…
He CAN be whatever He wants. He is God.
But this scripture has been vibrating in my head for a week…

15 May you be blessed by the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
16 The highest heavens belong to the Lord,
but the earth he has given to man.
Psalms 115:15-16

When I look at all the depravity, sickness, and flat out horror in the world, and then I read scriptures like this, I begin to wrestle…
Has He given US the earth and He allows us control?

Look. I believe in God, Spirit, Son.
Don’t freak out on me.
But as I look around the world…then read scripture like this…
I wrestle…
And to wrestle…
Is human…
Thoughts?
