Trying to Remember God Has a Plan

At a certain moment in Nietzsche's life, the idea came to him of what he called 'the love of your fate.' Whatever your fate is, whatever the heck happens, you say, 'This is what I need.' It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment - not discouragement - you will find the strength is there. Any disaster that you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege! This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow. Then, when looking back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great failures followed by wreckage were the incidents that shaped the life you have now. You’ll see that this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not.

Joseph Campbell, 1904-1987

American Mythology Professor and Author

Some days are hard, really hard, but I know that God will see us through as He has before. I sit here early this morning trying to calm my anxious heart, reminding myself that He always has a plan and that while I might not see it now we are safe in His loving arms. If you are struggling with any hardship this day I pray that knowing One who is greatest of All is in charge will bring you some comfort. Bless you all !
