Your world is not falling apart, it's falling into place!
It truly is!
I know this may be hard to see or believe at the time if you are going through something really hard in your life and in all appearances your world and life is completely falling apart. As we felt after the death of our son in April 2017.
But we humans can only see the small picture. If we could only see what God can see!
This is only a stepping-stone to what great things He has in store for you and I.
We all know the story of Joseph in the Bible. He was sold into slavery by his very own brothers. If this wasn't bad enough, he later was thrown into prison and under false accusations no less. Talk about his world falling apart!
But that is not the end of the story! Turns out this was part of God's great plan for his life, so that he could do something mighty for many nations including his very own brothers. Because of him being at that place at that time he saved many from starving in the seven years of famine.
This verse in Genesis 50: 19-20 sums it all beautifully!
"And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive."
Wow! That which was meant for evil, God turned it into something beautiful for His glory! ( There is many for such similar stories in the Bible as well.)
Don't you just love how God does that!
Joseph certainly had all the right in the world to believe his world was falling apart. But we know how the story ends!
His world was not falling apart, it was just falling into place! Glory be to God!
And that is the same for you and I too!
These hard things in life that we can not understand why, are getting us to where God wants us. He has a plan we can not see. And that plan is greater than anything we could ever hope for or imagine. I am getting excited just thinking about it!
God is going to do great things through you and I! Please believe that!
He is going to turn our pain into purpose!
Our tragedies into triumphs!
Our tears into joy!
Our setbacks into a break through!
Our wounds into beauty marks!
Our sorrows into serving!
All for His glory and to save many! Halleluiah, Jesus wins!
So when you think your world is falling apart, trust God that it's really not, but that it is just falling into place.
In Him, Mae
P.S. If you have not made God the Lord of your life yet. If He is not the very center of your life or your personal saviour. May this be your moment. Today is your day! He is waiting for you. And if you need someone to talk to besides our all knowing and all loving God please contact me, I would love to hear from you. I would love to help you to make this big step, or just be there for you in your difficult time.
