Motivation Monday: God's Will

"God has a reason for allowing things to happen. We may never understand His wisdom, but we simply have to trust His will." Anonymous

I know that in my lifetime, I have questioned God's Will many times. Usually, I was questioning His plan for my life.

Why does He allow people to hurt, or get ill, or go through any form of difficulty? We don't have to understand it, but we have to trust in His timing and His will. When I was in college, I failed the Math Praxis 6 times. This is an important test to pass in order to be a teacher. I was always within three points of passing. I was angry at God. Why did He let me fail this test six times? Did He think I wasn't meant to be a teacher? I definitely had that thought cross my mind.  

To this day, I don't know why He had me fail that test six times. Maybe it was a test to let me practice patience and waiting. I trusted that He would guide me in the direction that He wanted me to go. If it wasn't the way I thought I should go, I had to trust His will.

If you know someone who is going through a difficult time, know that God allowed this to happen. They don't know why, but trust in Him to bring them through it. Simply trust. 

This week, I want you to totally trust God's Will. Instead of looking at obstacles as a nuisance, embrace them, and look at them from God's perspective. 

I hope you find comfort in this for the week!
