Life has certainly been interesting these last couple months. I’m not sure if you are like me, but there are things that happen in my life that I just don’t understand. Have you ever been praying and wondering if God hears your prayers? Or wondering if he even cares? I mean there are a lot of people in this world, and its only one of him so he must have forgotten about me. Ok, I see you have never felt like that before. Well I can be the first to admit I have questioned God. It’s difficult to continue to pray when you don’t see results. My faith began to waver; I thought why pray it’s no use. I am thankful for people who will pray for me when I can’t pray for myself.
My aunt called me and told me she was thinking about me. Before we got off the phone she said, “Well let’s pray that whatever the outcome will be, God will work it for your good”.
About 5 minutes later I’m listening to the Tye Tribbet Pandora station and a song called “Intentional” by Travis Greene began to play. (Lyrics Below) I began to say God, “I guess you are talking to me”. Tears began to fall from my eyes because I realize that everything I’ve been through is all part of his divine plan. Everything happens for a reason is so cliché but it’s true. Remember that God can minster through song and this song right here ministered to my soul.
All things are working for my good Cos He’s Intentional Never failing I know that all things are working for my good He’s Intentional Never failing
We can smile cause we know it’s working Through the hurt and the pain I know it’s working for my good I know it’s working for my good This what I don’t have to worry cause It’s working for me
Several hours after listening to this song, I was scrolling through Face book and saw the words, “HE’S INTENTIONALLY, STRATEGICALLY, WORKING FOR YOU. I thought wow; this is the third time I’ve received the same message in one day.
The following day I received a bible message in my email inbox with this scripture: “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.” – Romans 8:28 NLT
At Bright Star C.O.G.I.C during Sunday morning service, I received confirmation that God will work everything out from A-Z. Even when it looks like the prayers are not answered, know that it will work out.
I’m writing this particular post as an encouragement to someone who may be questioning why certain things are happening in their life. Remember that God does not do anything half hazard. Even when we don’t understand what is going on, know that God has a plan for your life and all you have to do is trust him. I’ll leave you with this, “delay does not mean denial”
