THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
WHEN EVERYTHING COMES TOGETHER, IT WILL FIT PERFECTLY INTO PLACE
We all go through painful TIMES when we’re hurting, lonely, undergoing medical treatment, and on the SURFACE, the pieces of our life don’t make SENSE. We think they CAN’T be a part of God’s plan. Pain is a part of LIFE, and it often feels like a dark PLACE. It’s easy to get discouraged and think, God, why did this HAPPEN? You have to trust that even THEN, God doesn’t make any mistakes. He’s already designed your life and laid out EVERY piece down to the smallest DETAIL. He never said we would UNDERSTAND everything along the way.
God didn’t promise that there wouldn’t be any pain, suffering, or disappointment. But He DID promise that it would all work out for our GOOD. That PIECE that’s painful, that doesn’t LOOK as though it makes sense—when everything comes TOGETHER, it’s going to fit PERFECTLY in place. You just can’t see it NOW because the other pieces are not in PLACE.
1 Corinthians 13:12, NLT
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.
