Lord — yeah, and even if today didn’t go as planned,
and if it’s not at all what we hoped,
and if “we’re* not yet quite what we hoped,
and if life’s not unfolding to our Plan A
and if it’s not even close to Plan B

and if the diagnosis is not great
and if the forecast is not good
and if not… and if not… and if not…
*You still are.* You still are Good & You still are God.
And we will be the people who will still…
The people who will still rest in it & sing it into the dark:
“and if not — He is still Good. He is still God… so we can still & be & be at rest.”
– Ann Voskamp
