Does Anything Surprise God?

I ran across a clip posted on YouTube by a brother (I believe he's a brother in the Lord) who discusses views on divorce in the Bible, women preachers, and the inerrancy of the Bible as the Word of God. I haven't listened to all of his clips to decide whether or not I agree with anything he has to say, or if any of it resonates with me. . . but while browsing through his more info section, a link to an article in Time magazine was mentioned, so of course I visited it to read the article, "An Evangelical Rethink on Divorce?" which was published on 11/5/07. It included another link to another article published in September which asked the question "Are Mega-Preachers Scandal-Prone?"

The article mostly centered around the Weeks' and Whites' marital troubles that made headlines news earlier in the year. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Time took notice...but I'm glad that the tone or the article was not one of mockery, scorn and derision.... I wish I could say that for so many of the other things I've read and seen online since these tragic events thing occurred for all the world to see. One can rest assured though as my dear mother wisely advised me earlier this year... none of this that has happened has taken God by surprise.... and He's not sitting on His throne trying to figure out what to do about it and wringing His hands!! In times of crisis, both personal and public, it would do us all a world of good to remember that, yours truly included.
