Are you frustrated, disappointed, or upset
because you don't know why things happen the way they do?
Do you have hopes, and dreams, and plans
that don't materialize or unfold the way you wanted them to?
When you are experiencing life each and every day,
it is not possible to see what your life will be like in another year.
However, as time gradually marches on and
you look back on your life, many things will become more clear.
Because you will be able to see God's Plan at work in your life
during those times when you thought things were going astray.
With advancing age it becomes easier to wait on God and
be patient with anticipation when you encounter another delay.
Reference Scripture Verses
Jeremiah 29:11-13 - "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. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
Psalm 139:13-18 - For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
2 Corinthians 6:4-6 - Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;
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.
