We are faced with different situations that require we make some choices different from what we have earlier planned or what we would have loved to do.
We make decisions that affects our life and sometimes, we are not afforded the opportunity to do such. The decisions are thrown at us.
We try to make some changes and as much as we try, it proves abortive. Then people tell you it might be part of God's plan for you. So no matter how hard you try, it won't work out like you planned.
I'm very aware that God knows what's best for you. Infact He has good thoughts towards you. Thoughts of good and not of evil to bring you to an expected end, to give you a hope and a future.
God loves us and no matter what happens, he has good plans for us.
What happens most of the time is we have a blurry view of what God is doing, or no view at all. So struggle between what God is doing, what we want and what is actually obtainable. It's usually mind boggling especially if it has a great impact on our life. In areas like relationships, career, family, health, finance, etc.
Praying for God's will might be easy but accepting that what obtains which is what we don't want is God's will is usually what we find hard to accept. There is no better way to know the purpose of a thing other than asking the one who created it. God will reveal his plans and purpose if we stay in fellowship with him.
All things work together for good...
If God shows us the plan before it unfolds, most of us will loose sight and never reach our destination.
If he shows us the pain we will endure, most of us will try to circumvent it and if He shows us the things to enjoy, we would lavish it.
The perfect place to be is at the center of God's will. Right where he wants us where our purpose meets destiny, where we can fully fulfill his call for our life.
It might be hard for us to accept it but that's the best place to be.
May you not find enjoyment in the 'absence of God' in your life
