There is snow falling as I am writing this post. Today is April 1st! What an unexpected thing to have snow today! There are two ways to look at this.
1. What a bummer, guess I will have to put that swimsuit away!
2. Hey, now I can make that snowman!
Seriously, these are unexpected things that happen often in life. We can't change these things, but we can choose our response to these things. Things will happen in life that we can't control. The great thing about unexpected things is God knew it was going to happen. This gives me great comfort knowing that nothing will happen today that God did not know about. If this causes me to be surprised, I can trust that God will work it out for my good. So, here is my admonition to you.
Embrace the unexpected, because the undeserved could be on the other side.
