Sometimes we go through things in life that just don’t seem fair, you know what I mean? I often hear people say things like, “Why did God let this happen to me? I just don’t understand.” I know that life isn’t always fair, but I know that God is always fair. The Bible tells us in Romans 8:28, that God causes all things to work together for our good. The key word to look at is together.

We can’t isolate parts of our life & say this is not good or that’s not good, sure parts of our life aren’t always good. In itself certain things that happen in our lives aren’t good, but remember God sees the bigger picture for our life. Your life doesn’t stop because one bad thing happened to you, that is only one piece in the puzzle of your life, there will be other pieces some good & some bad that connect it all together to make things work together for your good.

When we’re baking something, it could be cookies, a cake, whatever, it takes many different ingredients. On their own many of these ingredients don’t taste good at all! If we isolate them they can be flat out nasty on their own, but when mixed together they taste so good, & if you leave one out, even if it’s just something small, whatever you’re baking just doesn’t turn out right. Some people get bitter about their life because they haven’t waited for all the ingredients to come together. But remember God has promised a great plan for your life. When bad things happen in your life don’t get stuck in those times, just remember that God is adding more ingredients to your life.

You may have had some setbacks & disappointments along the way & life may not have treated you fairly, but you wouldn’t still be here unless God had a great plan for your future. Those hard times & setbacks you went through were not the end, God has more ingredients coming, & He will put it all together to make something good happen in your life.

Not everything that happens in our life makes sense on its own, but we have to trust in God’s plan for our life. Have the attitude, “ I know God has a great plan for my life. Even though I don’t understand this, I know somehow, someway God will work it out to my advantage.” Keep your eyes on the bigger picture & know that God is bringing together all the needed ingredients in your life to bring to completion His ultimate plan for good things in your life.

August 11, 2011 @05:38 pm Man that is so true. I have had alot of setbacks in my life. Life can be really hard at times. I try to number my days and make the best of things. The problem is doing the best that I can sometimes is not good enough for some people. Thanks for the blog. It has made me think of different things. Pat Drahmann
