My Sunday Quote of The Week...

"God's plans for your life far exceed the circumstances of your day."
~Louie Giglio

Read it again, again and again… Let it simmer and sink in the depth of your soul and when you finally appreciate the complexity, the deepness and the meaning of this sentence, you will also understand that any bad day(s) is only a purposeful setback in what is to be the big picture that is your life.
Know this to be a fact that no matter what, you are going to have challenging days.
Psalm 118:24 says the Lord made today and every day. There is no promise on what kind of days you are about to face, so know you will face, good days, bad days, joyous days, and dreadful ones but rest assure HE made them all…
So knowing there is a purpose for each bad day, doesn’t that make them easier to handle?

If we accept that God has everything planned for us it doesn’t mean we have a preordained future and can’t exercise the gift of free will he gave us.
The late Roman, Christian philosopher Boethius said “We have free will, but God, who sees past, present, and future as one vast simultaneous picture, knows what decisions we'll make, because from his perspective we're already making them”

God simply guides us but he allows us to shape our own destiny. HE can and does sometimes get involved if you are deeply in touch with your circumstances and know to ask for His help and even then we need to understand that HE answers all of our prayers, and sometimes it is just that HIS answer is no…
