There can be times, when we go through a long and drawn out trial and we can wonder if or when we will ever come out of it. Instead of thinking that God is at work…making all things beautiful; we tend to focus on where the trial is leading us and how intense the trial appears to be; but one thing God continues to remind me of in Ecclesiastes 3:11, is this… “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.”
I remember a time, when I would say to myself…if I only knew what was going to take place in my life; then I would have went and hid somewhere for a while…but do you know what? I know without a doubt; that my all-knowing friend (God) would have found me.
I have come to see that even though God has planted the true purpose and plan, within each of our hearts; we don’t know the full scope of where these moments will lead us…and that is where we learn to lean on God and trust Him…knowing that in the end…this God of perfection, will make all things beautiful once more.
I have walked a long and difficult journey; but one thing I can testify of today; is that God can end an ugly story, with a beautiful ending. It may not always be what we expect; but there is contentment, in whatever He allows and brings forth, from these very trying times in our lives.
No matter what God may be allowing in your life right now, just know that He won’t leave you there; but rather, He is working…even as we speak, to bring you out into something beautiful…something that you have never experienced before…something that will change your heart and life forever!
