Can you truly figure life out? Regardless of how old you get, life can still pull a fast one on you. Things get out of control, fear overwhelms you, you revert to bad habits, and you let bad relationships go on for much longer than they should.
You keep your heart from finding true happiness to protect it from harm. Yes, you plan out your future, but it is still full of uncertainty. At the end of the day, it is never your plan but the issues you face that take priority.
Understand that life is like that for everyone. Nobody has things figured out. Also, know that God is watching over you, and you are where He wants you to be.
Don't doubt His timing, for it is perfect. He knows what will happen in your future down to the very second. He knows what battles you will face. That is why you pass through hardships that you cannot explain, not knowing that God is preparing you for a challenge that is to come later.
When He closes a door you so desperately want to go through, He is protecting you from the disaster that awaits you on the other side.
He wants you to take a path that will lead you closer to Him and His protection.
He fights several battles for you every day and you don't even know it.
You might feel you have failed because things did not go as planned. You might feel like every door you have ever wanted to go through has been shut in your face. It might feel like your life is falling apart all around you and neither you nor anyone can help salvage the pieces.
But at these moments, know that God is watching over everything.
And with God taking care of you, you will have little else to worry about. He understands your pain more than anyone, and He knows what you need better than you do. On top of that, He is the only one who can make your dreams come true.
God is gentle and loving, and He never forgets His child. At all times, He knows what's best for you and will not withhold it from you. God loves you more than you can know, and he knows how best to design your life.
He understands and knows all your mistakes and successes. He knows your story and still loves and cares for you. Your burdens are His burdens.
And so, when you feel overwhelmed by the chaos in your life, and are angry and sad as you face one challenge or another, know that God is in charge. When you need help, he will give you the answer you need. He will listen and respond.
Trust in God for He never fails. He can give you more blessings than you ever imagined, for He is our Divine Providence. So, take heart and be strong, you are the child of the eternal King, and He is always in charge.
