Advent 3 – When Plans Change
Saturday, December 22

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Life is all about change. Sometimes it is good and sometimes not. When things aren’t good, it is easy to ask God, why is this happening? I think it is human nature to want to understand the situation and we get frustrated when we can’t. We can only see a moment in time. God can see the whole picture: the past, present and future. Sometimes we figure out the why and we understand, but other times it is all a matter of faith.

God has a special plan for each of our lives. God is love and has the best in mind for us. God’s love is everlasting. Romans 8 tells us that nothing can ever separate us from the love of God in Jesus. Nothing. Not ever. God and His love are with us no matter what situation we find ourselves in and in every decision we make. All we need to do is embrace God and His love. It is our choice to live by following God’s Word. Each and every day we can choose to trust in God, accept that He sees the big picture and know that He is always with us.
