We act as if life is supposed to be normal. We are easily upset when things interrupt our expected existence. The truth is that we are ambassadors to this world and it isn't our real home. When ambassadors are in a foreign land, it is ... foreign, strange, unusual. If we become too comfortable here, we are no longer ambassadors. We become citizens.
Lord, help me to be OK when life is messed up and realize it is because I am not supposed to be home here.
