The Perfect Plan

Ok, so the journey is long, the steps are difficult and the end just doesn’t seem to be in view. Don’t we just trudge along sometimes with head down and heart heavy and steps weary?

I can only imagine a couple that did the same as they journeyed to Bethlehem for their government duties with taxes to pay and deadlines to meet and bones just as weary as ours! Yet with strength waning and with great apprehension amidst simple trust, nagging deep within their souls ~ they made their way.

Yeah, Joseph the obedient through thick and thin, and Mary ~ heavy with child; the Savior of the World, experiencing events so complex and hard to comprehend they made their way ~ just because it was God’s plan and they were a part of it. Sometimes His plans are not easy, but it was a beautiful plan, a plan for saving the world and it had to be and it had to be just “precise” in its timing and just perfect right down to the final straw.

No room, and all alone ~ but no! Not alone! Not even for a second, because God was guiding every lonely step of the way, even through their weariness. So beautiful, weary you with soul heavy, and heart-aching know that your steps are ordered by this same sovereign God that led the weary couple to Bethlehem! He directs with events so perfectly timed that we could never figure them out. He unravels the mess, the complications, the unanswered questions, the apprehension, and the fear laid right outright in heaps at your feet when you feel like throwing in the towel.
So don’t do it! He’s got it; whatever it is that has you bound in worry, so don’t give up! Mary went through what she went through for the ultimate purpose of delivering Christ to the world and presented us with a Savior and yeah, a beautiful example for us.

So, our purpose in this life is to do the same through our struggles and our situations! Whatever difficulty is heavy on your plate this advent season, let God lead you through it with precision as you deliver Christ to a needy world, through your faith and trust and joy even in the difficult.

Luke 1:35, 37

“The angel replied, ” The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy and He will be called the Son Of God…For nothing is impossible with God.”

Miracles Through Complexities


So have you some things coming at you that you wish weren’t. They’re coming from all directions and it’s shaping up to be a hassled week with difficult things to face. Oh, they’re not really even that hard, but for you they are because it’s your story and your story has nooks and crannies that others might not even know nor care about. Know, this beautiful soul; God’s presence goes before you today, tomorrow and the week ahead and paves the way for your difficult moments. He’s not leaving you to face it on your own or to walk your path of distress, alone. No! Not even for a moment is He doing that. For your anxieties, He’s got peace. For the blues, He’s got Hope! For the doubts, He’s got promises! For our weaknesses, He’s got strength. For our failures He got grace and for our insecurities He’s got confidence and unconditional love that reaches to the lowest depths of our feelings to lift us into the highest heights of the heavenlies. That’s pretty awesome to thing about. So think on it today as you ponder the days ahead. He’s got it! He’s got it all; your next moment, your day, the week ahead and He might not send a burning bush or a parted Red Sea as such, but He will indeed speak over you and bless you with divine guidance if you wait on Him, and walk on faithfully. So persevere through the difficult, faithful one, and watch His mighty hand work His miracles through your complexities!
