Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
- K. L. Watkins
In the movie The Sound of Music, Maria sings “My Favorite Things” to the von Trapp children to comfort them during a thunderstorm. She tells them that whenever she’s scared or upset, she simply sings about things that bring her comfort and joy. I figure if she can sing about “raindrops on roses,” then I should be able to use Scripture to do the same thing.
In anger, frustration and deep brokenness, I went to God expressing my sincere disappointment. And that’s when He gave me Matthew 28:20 to not only strengthen me in that moment, but to carry me for years to come.
