None of us is immune to awkward moments or uncomfortable situations. It’s life on planet earth! But it would we be nice if there were just a few less ones each week.
Thankfully, Someone presides over the totality of our lives – even the messy, inconvenient, embarrassing ones. God has a perfect plan which incorporates these moments into His master plan to conform us to the image of His Son. Yes, even clumsy, gawky situations. In fact, perhaps His sovereignty is on even greater display in these times!
We all need to grow in faith, for without it, we cannot please God (Hebrews 11:6). Praise Him that even in the sticky scenarios of life, our faith has opportunity to do just that!
