Heartbreaking situations and experiencing devastating losses have definitely robbed me of happiness.
For a year, I have been praying about a situation. Currently, I am in a season of waiting. Personally, I don't like this season of waiting. It is hard to wait patiently on the Lord. But I know God has a wonderful plan for me.
How do I know? Glad you are wondering.
1. He is with me while I am waiting.
2. He knows this is a vulnerable time for me so he gives me scripture to rely on when the devil is tormenting me.
3. God's timing not mine; that's why I need faith.
4. It is a wonderful plan because God says so.
His plan might look different than mine. "The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." (Proverbs 16:9). Drawing closer to God and getting to know him better, I know his wonderful plan is much more than I could imagine.
"God has prepared things for those who love him that no eye has seen, or ear has heard, or that haven't crossed the mind of any human being." (1Corinthians 2:9).
