As the sun sets on another day, the question of the day is "Who is in control anyway?" 

As mortals (humans, all that stuff) we are a blip on the radar or less, as we barely even live before we are gone. In the life of the sun we are not even a thought, in the life of God, we are a fraction of a moment. So as we go down the path and consider our sunrises, and sunsets, we have to consider who is in control. So many people think they have it figured out (I am not one of them) and put their trust in their interpretation of control, but many do not see the signs painted right before them.

Consider the old joke about the man who puts his faith in God:

A flood is coming and first a policeman comes to his door. "A flood is coming, you need to come with me" 

"No", the man says, "I have faith that God will save me"

A short time later the area  is flooded to his doorstep and a man comes up in a rowboat and yells, "A flood is coming, you need to come with me"

"No", the man says, "I have faith that God will save me"

As the water rose to his roof the man get to the top of his house, and a helicopter comes. The pilot yells, "A flood is coming, you need to come with me".

"No", the man says, "I have faith that God will save me"

And so the man drowns. 

At the gates of heaven he looks to the lord and asks, "why didn't you save me". The lord softly replies, "I sent a police car, a boat and a helicopter, what else did you have me do?"

Sometimes the path we are given is a path that is not the one we choose. Sometimes it is. Look for the path that ensures your happiness so that one day when you stand before God you can say, "Thank you, you made my life worthwhile and happy and I showed the world how great your love is!"
