My pastor always says that God ruins you in the best possible way. A couple months ago my world turned upside down. All of my worst fears came true. A love I truly thought would last forever ended, and I was left standing alone, insecure, and without a plan. To say that I was angry and confused with God is an understatement. This had been something I'd prayed fervently about for 3 years and I couldn't understand why He took it away.
As I reflect on where life has taken me these past few months, it's easy to see that God "ruined" my plans so that He could rebuild me for His divine purpose. He is the Master Planner and knows where our lives will take us. He doesn't want his children to live in fear and anxiety, he wants us to live in joy and freedom.
Trusting in the Lord's plan is not easy. The healing process I've been going through is certainly a struggle. It's hard to put complete faith in God when we have selfish hearts that want instant gratification. But if there is one thing I've learned, it's that there is so much freedom from fear, anxiety, and doubt when we trust in God's perfect plan and timing.
God's "NO" to things is actually in preparation for His plan when he says "GO."
Some truths I've learned about trusting:
God never makes mistakes.
God is enough. He is all we need.
Psalm 23:1, Psalm 73:23-26, Colossians 1:9-10
We are not alone. God's love is infinite and unconditional.
John 15:13, 1 John 4:7-10, Romans 8:38-39, Ephesians 3:14-19
