For most of the Knight clan, a trip to the dentist means walking two blocks up the street.
For one of us, it means a pre-op physical, a 40 minute drive to a specialty health surgical facility, and general anesthesia.
It didn’t go as well as it has in the past – more pain than usual for Paul, more confusion on his part, more discouragement on ours.
God knows his pain, his confusion, and my discouragement. And I know it is all for his glory and for my good.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar. . .
even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
(Psalm 139:2, 12 ESV)
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. . .And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:18, 28 ESV)
And right now, that is enough. God is good.
