God's Obviously Trying to Teach Me Something

Today during my quiet time I was reading through the flipbook that my mom had made for each of us kids a year or so ago and one entry really stood out to me.

-Nothing will ever happen to you that God does not already know about.
Psalm 139: 1-4 "O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord.

-Nothing will ever happen to you that is a mistake.
Psalm 139: 4, 16 "Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord....All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

-Nothing will ever happen that you cannot handle by God's power and grace.
2 Corinthians 12: 9-10 "Be he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

-Nothing will ever happen to you that will not eventually be used by God for some good purpose in your life.
Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

-Nothing will ever happen to you without God's presence.
Matthew 28:20 "...And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

God produces fruit by putting us in opposite situations
ex. Love - people who are hard to love
Peace - Middle of a storm


  1. Thank you for posting this today. I really needed to hear it. Some days are so difficult for me when I think about our baby never coming home with us. Today is one of those days.
    I know I don't know you but I pray for you and your family and the precious baby inside of you.
    Be blessed today...
