That’s the word that comes to mind as I reflect on the day… though not everything went to plan, they worked out perfectly because of 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.
I love to picture it like a jigsaw puzzle… We pick up a piece and think it’s supposed to fit in a certain place, but then God picks up another piece and says, ‘Here, this is the one that’s meant to go in next.’ He reveals it to us step by step, enough that we know which piece to put in place, but not enough to see the full picture yet until the masterpiece is finished. Then we’ll be able to stand back in awe of the wonderful picture that he was putting together for us, for our benefit, for us to enjoy… for His ultimate glory.
God, you are so good.
