Glorious Frustration

That is what I see today. Reading through the book of John, I can see that the disciples experienced this as well. They know fully that Jesus is the savior of all, but at the same are confused with his teachings and interactions.

Jonelle and I are on this journey and so much has happened that we can only give God all our praise. But yet when something trivial comes along, we just get bummed and frustrated. We do not know why something is happening or even how to fix it (if there is fixing). So we are in this period of what I call a Glorious Frustration. When we still praise God for the large easy things and those little difficult and almost stupid things we have to go through each day. But I am encouraged to know that Jesus knows the greater picture!
