Sometimes life can throw you a curb ball. We cannot forget God's sovereignty through it all. His hand divinely orchestrates all things for good and for His glory. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is believing His word and trusting Him for the outcome. I sat, one time, under a wonderful Titus 2 woman (Mrs. Norma Whitcomb) as she was teaching about the canvas of life. She said in a beautiful piece of artwork there are bright colors which represent all good things that have happened in a life and there are dark colors which represent the opposite. She said the a beautiful piece of work needs both. See, the dark colors make the bright colors stand out and look more beautiful. Both is need to complete the picture--like the one above.
I know the Lord is not done with my canvas. I know He is making it beautiful in its time.
He wants me to know the true meaning of His words:
"The Lord is my shepherd I shall not be in want."
and this powerful verse:
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
When I am blindfolded, I trust Him to lead me through the valley and guide me with His hand. I hope you will do the same.
