 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.

 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55: 8-9

Over the years I have come to understand this passage more and more.The event that made me embrace it was the death of our son, Brad, in 2012.
Prior to that, our lives were filled with family situations  both happy and sad but we were content because we were sure God’s ways coincided with ours.

Now we needed to revisit this passage and realize that our ways needed to comply with God’s ways and not the reverse.

My prayer is that I continue to hold fast to it and ask God to show me his ways.
With all that is going on in the world, I pray that all of us are made more aware and take comfort in this verse when our ways are not His ways.
