REASONS FOR HOPE
I will not leave you orphans: I will come to you. John 14: 18
“For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that be God’s will, than for doing evil.” 1 Peter 3: 17
The old line says “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” Many of us are diligent in our planning and making sure things are progressing smoothly. Then disaster strikes, we don’t get the result that was intended or an unforeseen problem arises. Many times we may respond negatively and ask, “Why me? I did everything right!” Here’s the thing – adversity humbles us and reminds us of our dependence on God and not on our own self-reliance. Rest assured, God has a better plan in store for you.
