It’ll all turn out the way it should
There are many plans in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand. Proverbs 19:21
We all want to have worth, and inherently, we want to believe our existence—our time on this earth—has meaning. Too many times, we look back at our lives and see nothing of value, and too often focus on the mistakes and bad things we’ve done. This is something I think the Lord will change in us when we focus on Him. He will cause us to know that everything has a purpose, and though our contributions may seem small in our eyes—and the eyes of the world—they are important in God’s eyes.
We might not be famous, and most of us won’t be in the headlines, or on the evening news, but we may be the one to encourage someone who will do great things. I hear and read stories all the time about people who were discouraged and defeated, then a small kindness or helping hand gave them new hope and they went on to accomplish their dreams.
I have jokingly stated that as a writer I will probably get famous after I die, and, who knows, maybe it’s true. But, I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, to be content, and I am content, knowing these encouragements I share are a blessing to someone each day.
