Who here hasn't had their journey interrupted? How about the lost of a dream, or YOUR plans dashed on the seawall of the unexpected? Your journey, your dreams, your plans, interrupted, lost, dashed. Do you ever wonder why these things happen? Why did this happen to me? Why do bad things happen to good people when all around us it seems like good things are happening to bad people? Do you even wonder if God knows what He's doing?
"God will interrupt your journey, devastate your dreams, He’ll plunder your plans, all because He knows that what He wants for you is better.
Well, of course He does! His ways are far better than ours. We only see the little picture while He sees the big, developing story of our lives. We see the tip of the iceberg, He sees the whole big old thing! He has a journey planned for us far better than we could ever dream of or hope for. And it's true, He knows that what He wants for you is better than what you want for yourself. Repeat that to yourself. What He wants for me is FAR better than what I want for myself!
God never promised an easy, comfortable journey through this thing we call life. But He promises to be faithful. He promises to never leave us and He promises the grace we need to become transformed into what He has called us to be.
Do you trust Him today? Do you trust His hand when you do not understand? Remember, He IS faithful, and what He wants for you is better!
