All is in Divine Order

posted by cgreb

The last month has been a bit unstable.  My housing situation was up in the air (as written about in “Faith in the Face of Flux”) and then there were transportation issues.  I was to return to Colorado with a truck full of belongings today.  But four days ago that truck was sideswiped by someone and would therefore no longer be available for the drive.  And because I had responsibilities in Colorado and New Mexico, I ended up having to buy a ticket to fly home.  But, all is well.  Everything is working out.  All is in Divine Order.

 

I love that phrase.  It was introduced to me by my friend, Dan, who is now “on the other side.”  It has become a bit of a mantra.   All is in Divine Order.  All is in Divine Order.  Lose a house?  All is in divine order.  Lose a job?  All is in divine order.  Have a car accident?  All is in divine order.  Fall and hurt your knee?  All is in divine order.

I truly am learning to trust that when something doesn’t happen according to my plan, something else even better is in store.  So when complications arose regarding the house I was supposed to be living in, an even better house was found.  When something happened with the truck, I realize the timing is perhaps even better this way.  When I fell, I trust it’s for a reason – if only to better understand how it feels when a parent falls and what I can do to help them the next time it happens.

All is in Divine Order.  Next time something happens that you would rather didn’t happen, try this mantra.  All is in Divine Order.  Then trust that it is so.  All is going according to plan.  Even if it isn’t your plan.

Blessed be.

Have a beautiful day.

What Is Most Important?
So, I have decided to take a break from writing this blog for a while. Although I have much to write about, sometimes the time, energy, and means to write it are not as available. And I’m in a place in my life right now where I don’t care to “push the river.” I have to prioritize how I use

Things Can Shift in an Instant
Two times in the last two weeks I was feeling incredibly depleted and fatigued.  The first time it was after driving 2000 miles across the country in four days by myself - the third and longest day was through gale force Kansas winds that shook my car so thoroughly I had to slow way down so as not

What Do You Value?
On a long 2,000 mile car trip across the country recently, I found myself with some time to think.  Car trips can be good that way.  Somewhere along the way I found myself thinking about money and how we have come to place such value on something which is, in actuality, paper.  Yes, I know theore

A Time for Others and a Time for Self
We're all familiar with that timeless piece of wisdom found in Ecclesiastes: "There is a time for everything,     and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2     a time to be born and a time to die,     a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3     a time to kill an

Learning to Trust
I finally figured out what I'm doing wrong.  I figured out why I've been having so much trouble with Dad's move into the nursing home, with his recent decline, and with his current fevered state.  It's not that I'm afraid of him dying, it's that I don't want him to be uncomfortable.  I don't want
