Recently, a young family member received a large promotion and relocation to a different state surprising many of us. This lovely young woman didn’t even finish junior college and had numerous boyfriends over the years which led the family to think she would marry very young and begin having children early on. There is certainly nothing wrong with that but that seemed to be the general consensus. Never did I think or know that she was diligently working at her job as evidenced by this recent promotion.
What I have been thinking about are my mistaken views of this woman as we all lovingly joked about her following a family get-together. Now, I am questioning myself; could I be wrong about other things as well? Zephaniah 3:17 states “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” My heart fills with humility and gratitude as I realize He does not give up on me.
