Granted In What He Ordaineth

As bitter as I was during my years as a single woman, I found myself strangely able to sing “Hast thou not  seen/How all thy longings have been/Granted in what He ordaineth?” I remember singing those words with utter conviction, even while thinking about my loneliness and my desire for a husband.

I have, of  course, seen the Lord graciously grant that longing. I’ve also seen His loving providence in many other areas of my life. I’ve seen, furthermore, His faithfulness in guiding history according to His sovereign purposes. Although He most certainly reigns as the King of creation, He lovingly cares for the needs of His people.

Even in disappointment let us remember His kindness to us. Let us gladly praise Him with all that is in us, trusting that He ordains what we need to best honor Him.

Most importantly I belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. Secondarily, I'm married to my wonderful husband, John. We've both used wheelchairs since childhood (he from Polio and me from Cerebral Palsy). I type with a headstick because I can't control my hands. I enjoy reading, creating digital art, and exploring Boston with John.
