Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.
I felt God!
- I don’t have to understand God’s plan. The point is that He has one and I’m a part of it. Regardless of my illness, regardless of my experiences, and regardless of my rebellion. He has a plan! I’m a part of that plan! I don’t have to know exactly what that plan entails a hundred years from now. I just have to trust Him to provide for me and to place me where I should be. I have to be a vessel; full and willing to be used.
- God’s plan for Danny was fulfilled. Danny followed God and trusted Him to guide his life. Danny’s purpose, whatever that was, had been met. Why would God allow him to stay on Earth amidst the temptations, trials, and troubles if he had already fulfilled his purpose? So while his untimely death might seem torturous and unfair to me, Danny is singing among the angels in heaven. He’s at peace. He’s looking down on me, wondering why I’m being so dumb! He’s fine! He wants nothing more than for me to be okay and happy again.
- No matter what trials I face, God is in control. He knows what he’s doing and I really need to start trusting that. Trust Him with my health. Trust Him with my relationships. Trust Him with my career. Trust Him with my life!
