What I'm Reading

Isaiah 55:8-9
New International Version (NIV)
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
This has been a good read so far and I expect it will just get better.  In fact, I'm finding it hard to put it down.  I was especially impressed that this young woman held hostage inland by Somalia pirates was able to recall and claim for herself the words her father prayed after learning of his wife's terribly swift death from a severe flu,  "God, I don't understand this.  I don't understand you…but I choose to trust you."
