Hebrews 12:15 says, “Be careful that no one fails to get God’s grace. Be careful that no one loses their faith and becomes like a bitter weed growing among you. Someone like that can ruin your whole group.”
There have been times in my life when things did not work out as I’d planned. It’s times like this that I feel I may have missed it somehow. Then I remember this verse:
The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
And He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because the Lord is the One [a]who holds his hand. Psalm 37:23-24
So don’t be short-sighted! Don’t become bitter or lose faith! God has your way all planned out and will work everything out to the very last detail. There’s nothing too hard, too big or anything that overwhelms Him. He’s always looking to bless you if you’ll keep your trust and hope in Him.
Everything I do, every step I take, every word I speak is merely ushering in the extremely good plans God has for me. Everything I learn is not wasted, God will use it somehow for His good.
I’m excited for you, my friend. Don’t allow yourself to become discouraged or bitter. Rejoice in the Lord and trust in Him because HE will bring it to pass.
