Sometimes when the unexpected and undesired happens, we spend a lot of time expressing how we feel about it.
We are angry, fearful, baffled, etc,
Then we often move on to blame. Whose fault is it? Someone we can identify? Someone we can’t? Could it be our fault?
If we cannot find a place to lay blame, we blame God. He could have prevented it. He could have stopped it. Satan tempts us to believe God wasn’t or isn’t there … or if He is, He simply does not care about us.
But God is there, as He always has been. He does care deeply about us. He loves us with an Everlasting Love. He has a Plan for our lives and it is a Good Plan.
Our part is to trust Him. Life is often like a giant puzzle. God reveals one piece at a time, fitting it all together into a beautiful picture we may not see fully until we rise above it.
Sometimes when life comes at us hard, it is best to accept for whatever reason, it is what it is now.
God knows what it is now and He knows what it will be for all the tomorrows. He is with us always and ever shall be.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!”
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His Purpose.
