But in the end, does it really make a difference what anyone does? I've had a good look at what God has given us to do—busywork, mostly. True, God made everything beautiful in itself and in its time—but he's left us in the dark, so we can never know what God is up to, whether he's coming or going. I've decided that there's nothing better to do than go ahead and have a good time and get the most we can out of life. That's it—eat, drink, and make the most of your job. It's God's gift.

I've also concluded that whatever God does, that's the way it's going to be, always. No addition, no subtraction. God's done it and that's it. That's so we'll quit asking questions and simply worship in holy fear.

Ecclesiates 3:11-14 (The Message Bible)

Thank you for this message this morning! I have several situations that have been overwhelming me and I realize I Have to turn them over to God. HE alone can handle them, he doesn't need my help.
God Bless you today and always!!!
