Peaceful Future


For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

When we witness to others, we will tell them that God wants only what’s best for them, and while that is true, it’s very difficult to see, when you are the one going through the fire. I feel as though I had one of those moments today.

It’s that time of year again, it’s the fall season and the golden rod is flying. Allergies abound, at least they do for me, along with a host of sinus issues. I went to bed late, and then I was up very early, “mouth breathing” and feeling rather uncomfortable. I knew I should have gone to bed early, but it never seems to work out that way. Anyway, there I was this morning desperately praying to God for relief, but nothing seem to be long-lasting. If I didn’t know better I would think that I was being punished.

After a trip to the Health Food Store and some Olbas Oil, and some time spent in fresh air, relief would come. It was a very long day, but still wonderful, even though I am now tired at a much earlier hour.

I know that God wants only what’s best for me. Perhaps He allowed my discomfort, so that I could get into bed at a much earlier hour today, as I am now extremely tired and will soon be going off to bed. I know this may not be a big deal to many, but I see God’s Hand in every area of my life.

  1. I’m glad you are feeling better now.. and I think you are right that God allowed your discomfort so that you could go to bed early. We never know why things happen but they are always for a reason.

  2. You are not alone. My knowing that God is sovereign, and that I am his child frames my whole life. I do recognize even small things are sometimes his providences to accomplish something in me for his glory. I hope you feel better. Thankfully, I do not suffer from allergies.

    1. Hi Barbara, thanks for reading….and you are so lucky that you don’t suffer from allergies. I am feeling better today, and it is good that we can recognize God working in the small things in our lives to work something better for His glory, because unfortunately a lot of people don’t see Him like that, they see Him as an evil God, which is so, so, very sad.
