Lyric Devotional - Everything Beautiful pg. 2

There was a time in my life that I thought everything was going my way. I thought I was on the right track, I thought I was doing what God wanted me to be doing and I thought I had all the things I needed in life. Sometimes, what we think is best for ourselves is really not what God knows is best for us.

Sometimes, doors close, people change, and things are taken away from us and we wonder, why? Sometimes our world gets shaken so that we will walk in the path God desires us to walk in. Sometimes we need to feel like no one understands us so that we will cling to Jesus completely, rely on Him fully and go where He wants us to go.

In a split second our lives can change completely. Our on top of the world moments can then change into those fork in the road decisions in an instant. Change can be so good for us and so hard for us to go through at the same time. Yet there is One who will never change. One who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. One who is faithful forever and who makes everything beautiful in its time. One who sticks closer to us then a brother, Who’s name is Jesus.

Sometimes it’s ok to live in uncertainty for a time because it keeps us seeking and trusting God with our lives. For an example, let’s look at Job. He was a man who was striving to do good, yet in the Bible we read of his heartbreak and sufferings. His confusion about why bad things were happening to him, his loneliness and feelings of uncertainty and isolation.

I can imagine how he could have felt like giving up at times, but he didn’t. He kept seeking the Lord, resting in His truths and promises, praising Him for His faithfulness and trusting that God the LORD above all, knew best. The Bible says that the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning...” Job 42:12 (ESV). God is always faithful forever, He is always good.

💜 He makes Everything Beautiful. 💜
