Proverbs 16:9 says” The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
What do you do when you’ve added all the ingredients as directed and the bottom falls out? You know what? It never turns out the way it does on the box does it? You can follow those instructions to the letter but when the product is done it’s not what the box looks like. You know why? Well it’s simple, see what they don’t tell you is that they do lots of touch up before they put on the market. They use computer a software known as computer- editor it changes the hew, the lighting of the red-eye they change it so much no wonder it sells.
But what about you? You venture out to take that leap of faith while holding on to hope you have. Done almost everything you can possible think of, that God would have you to do. The last thing you thought would happen is that the bottom would drop, it didn’t turn out the way you thought it would.
And so now because we are creatures of habit we start examining the outcome, did we doubt just a tiny-bit? Perhaps we did worry in the back of our minds? Maybe we didn’t see it happening for us? Oh we can analyze it all day long and still would not know the answer about why the bottom dropped.
I do believe that when things like this happens it’s because God had a reason and we don’t always understand nor do we want to accept it. And rather it makes sense to us or not, God has His reasons.
Always remember when the bottom drops out; God is constantly working in you and it’s not the end of the world. I know it’s easier said than done, but when you think about what other people are facing in life our drop pan is not even a fraction of what others are facing in their lives.
On that positive note, thank Him for the blessings and don’t let it keep you from taking another leap of faith. For this was just another stepping stone getting you closer to God.
