All I really know for sure is that God is in the details. He is in the good, the bad, the ups and downs, the struggles and the average, ordinary days. God is in our muddled mess and seeks to use it for His glory.
Last week, I wrote about drawing near to God. I dug into what happens when our normal days are interrupted and cause us to pause due to change and possible redirection. I sought wisdom from God’s word and the whispers that only He can send our way. God began to teach me that He takes our muddled mess and makes it into His glorious certainty. God taught me that…

God is in the details, this I know for sure. The one thing that pulled me through this past week was the promise that God was in every detail of my muddled week. It was knowing that…
When our week looks nothing like we expected, God is there in the interruptions, uncertainty and mess.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast. Psalm 139:7-10
When life looks bleaker than we imagined, God provides hope.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12: 12
When hard decisions come at us relentlessly, God creates the space to breathe.
“Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10
When exhaustion is our mantra, God covers our weariness with rest and peace.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29
All I really know is that God’s plan is perfect and there are no mistakes. The days that are blessings are just as important as the ones that challenge us. The questions are complete with answers of God’s choosing and His timing is flawless.
When my muddled mess clouds my vision, God’s promises to break through into glorious certainty. He is the certain in our uncertainty. His love never fails and His promises are true.
You are in the dark and the light. Your strength covers our every weakness. When our days turn into uncertainty, you promise glorious certainty. Today we pray that when our life takes a pause, we see you in the interruption and redirection that you are lovingly leading. We pray that your presence surrounds us and leads us straight to your arms in an embrace of rest and peace. We love you and thank you for standing by us in every detail of our lives.
To you be the praise, honor and glory forever and ever! Amen!
In God’s gracious peace and love,
