Coming & Going

"And though it's always sweet sorrow to part, I know you'll always remain in my heart."

Those are the words from a song I sing for fun to my kids when they're going to bed. It's the "goodnight" song from the Lawrence Welk show, I watched it as a kid with my parents every week. It's funny the things that stick in your mind.

These words came to me tonight. I was thinking about people in our lives and how some come into your life, they stay for awhile and then they go. Others stay forever, they're keepers. But some, well, it just doesn't work out the same. That's happening lately. A lot of change to work through and I wonder - how can God be glorified in this. In going over my sermon notes and scripture tonight, I read again that there are 4 things I can be sure of:

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS:
  1. God will have the ultimate victory.
  2. God will be glorified.
  3. Trials work for us, not against us.
  4. The invisible world is real (according to Tozer, more real than this world!)
2 Corinthians is full of treasures!

During these days when people are coming and people are going and change is happening rapidly, I can praise the Lord for those four things I am reminded of tonight.


Good night, sleep tight, and pleasant dreams to you.
Here's a wish and a prayer that every dream comes true
And though it's always sweet sorrow to part,
I know you'll always remain in my heart.

Good night, sleep tight, and pleasant dreams to you
Here's a wish and a prayer that every dream comes true
And now till we meet again....

Adios, Au revior, Auf weidersehen.... goodnight.
