Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

See the Blessing

on July 18, 2021

Jeremiah 29:11- “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

“Three years? Perhaps longer?”

Last month our son told us his family was moving to Germany where our daughter-in-law had accepted a position with the Department of Defense.

We had known about the job application. The possibility of them relocating. We’d even prayed that God’s will, not ours, would come to pass. And we really did want the very best for them. 

Still, the news devastated us.

My husband and I had just completed renovating a small condo near them. Four hours away from our home in Arizona.

We had looked forward to living part time near them and bonding with our newborn grandson. Now it looked like our dreams were only that. Dreams.

In the following weeks, they prepared for their move. Packing, selling many of their belongings, saying goodbye to family and friends.

Last March, God had led us to purchase the condo. We were so sure He wanted us to spend time with our son and family. Were we wrong?

No! We have come to realize that God blessed us in incredible ways. We had the resources to make the purchase, do renovations (which my husband and I love to do) and even bring us new friends in the process.

God knew that the sweet little family that we love so much would be leaving. He chose to bless all of us—ahead of time—with precious moments spent together. Times that have allowed us to form a close bond that will sustain us while we are apart.

Are you wondering where God is in all of the circumstances of your life? Ask Him to show you His hand of blessing… His plan for your future.
