Romans 8:28 : “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.”
Sometimes, my life seems like one big mess! I wonder and ask God, “What is happening here?” One day I seem to be rebuked by God, the next I make a mistake, the next day I am soaring on wings like eagles. I wonder when everything will make sense. Beneath the surface, I can’t see what God is doing through all of these painful moments in my life. I can’t see that God is creating a beautiful symphony out of all the “unruly notes.” However, like Corrie Ten Boom said, I can have faith that God is making something so beautiful even out of all the knotted parts of my life. Joyce Meyer once said, “What you don’t understand now – things that you’re going through right now that you do not understand, that you can’t make any sense out of it at all – later on, I promise you, later on – you will look back and say, ‘Now, I get it, Now I get it.'” We don’t see the beautiful embroidery that God is creating on the other side of God’s weaving, through sowing in tears and pain, through sowing in hardships and lots of struggles, but we can trust in God that we just haven’t seen all the blessings he has in store for us.
Therefore, I must keep fighting the good fight and struggle to love God with all of my heart, mind, soul, and strength through my everyday efforts, prayers, tears, and self-denial. May I trust that God’s plans for me at the end of the day are meant for good, and not for harm. He is creating a symphony out of all our lives~
Jeremiah 29:11: “‘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.'”
