Our lives are filled with change....new exciting ones and then some we didn't want or expect.
God is the only constant and the only one who knows the out come of the change.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 - Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end.
This scripture made me think of a microscope. A scientist takes a little piece of something lays it on a slide puts it under a microscope, zooms in and sees it cells.
The scientist still isn't getting the whole scope of things because first of all this is a piece of something bigger. Secondly, the microscope can only zoom in so much to see a portion of the make up of the item he is studying.
God made the something and can see its whole structure from beginning to end.
This is why we can put our faith in God in the changes that come our way. He knows the path. He knows the whole scope of things.
When God gives you a new beginning, it starts with an ending. Whew....That ending may not be what we wanted or expected.
When my dad passed unexpectedly almost 6 years ago. Medically he wasn't doing well but we didn't think that would be the ending.
God knew the path.
About a year or so after my dad passing my mom got sick and we have now come to know that she has a chronic illness. Which is somewhat debilitating.
Also not what we expected, yet again God knows the path.
God knew what my parents needed, the path was clear for Him.
God wastes nothing....He uses it all.
I know God has used me through all of this and also that because of all of this my spiritual foundation has gotten stronger.
Change is all apart of life and we learn accept things and move forward....eventually and in our own time.
But in the beginning when we don't seem to understand remember that God does.
He knows every bit of you and will make that change work for His Kingdom.
