God has a plan and it won’t be thwarted. Rest in the assurance of His purpose. This isn’t a complacent what will be will be with no chance for redemption. No, it is a plan like the Master Gardener, who prunes and moves plants until the whole garden is brimming with His beauty. It is the tapestry that has two sides. One side looks a mess, but the finished piece is gorgeous and tells the Weaver’s story. There is purpose and order even when it appears chaotic for the moment. Trust in His workmanship. We are His prize – His possession – His dear children!

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
