It may be at your highest high, or your lowest low, or just an ordinary moment, but there does come a time when you realize things happened the way they were suppose to happen. You realize that God had a plan, and that everything happens for a reason. That realization is such an amazing feeling as you begin to put the puzzle pieces of life together and see for yourself the impact that each of those puzzle pieces had in allowing the next to fit together so well. Just as the puzzle you are building begins to become more visible, the faith and trust in our creator becomes much greater. That faith and trust allows joy to overflow in in our hearts to recognize the love in the bigger picture; His Plan!
“A man’s steps are directed by the Lord.
How then can anyone understand his own way?”
– Proverbs 20:24
Only God knows what the future holds and what our puzzle of life will look like in the end. It is up to us to trust His Plan and know that it is a better plan. Yet every step we take, we need to know that it will lead us to where He is taking us. Though we might fail, we might take the wrong turn, and it might take us a little longer to get back on track, have faith in knowing that God is holding our hand and leading us back to path He wants for us. Through each of these wrong turns, in reality were not a wrong turn because God knew that’s where we would go. During each of those wrong turns He created a lesson to be learned. He is always helping us become a better version of ourselves through these adversities and life’s difficulties no matter how big or small they may seem at the time.
You see, things will not happen on our timetable. We are not in charge of that no matter how hard we try. Yet, when we live day by day, moment by moment, and trust that God has a plan, we can leave behind us all of the worry and stress with God. Give Him your burdens, your worries, your stress and anxiety. Talk to God and ask for your deepest desires and He will give you a life filled with abundance, love, peace, and joy!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to hard you,
plans to give you hope and a future.”
– Jeremiah 29:11
