This week has been a bit of a roller coaster. Thoughts of loss have been on my mind frequently throughout the week, especially with some heartbreaking news at the start of the weekend from a dear friend. Through it all, I've come back to a song that I first heard a few weeks ago. The chorus provides such beautiful perspective that all we have comes from God, and that when things seem to be lost to us, they are not lost to Him. Although this song specifically references loss of a child and loss from adoption, but I feel the application to so many times we feel loss in life. I am trying to keep the perspective of "what's mine is yours" in relation to the Lord, and knowing that He knows what is needed for all of us. I am grateful to know that all loss is somehow compensated.
