Providence in retrospect

According to Crossway’s blog on their newly released book, Amazing Grace, “We often see the pattern of providence only in retrospect. We are often so overcome by grief or anger about our circumstances that we struggle to see how these experiences fit into God’s plan for us. Remember the story of Joseph? Surely Joseph wondered about the goodness of a God who allowed all of those things to happen to him. And yet through those trials, God raised up Joseph and saved the entire nation of Israel.”

Amen to that. (Month 27 of hubb’s unemployment)

Update: 1 week after I posted this, hubbs got a job offer. Providence.
