Hello wonderfully-made! It’s an honour to be in your reading pleasure.
I found myself smiling to myself remembering a movie scene:
J: “Is there anywhere on this list that says, marry a man that isn’t your fiancé?!”
One of the girls just waking from a hang over, squinted her eyes to better see the said list shoved in her face, replied with a calm and barely concealed amusement, that I and the character found annoying:
“I don’t see anything like that here”
I was about scolding the wild friends for allowing a bachelorette party end, with the bride-to-be waking up in the suite of a stranger, she had drunkingly married the night before. (Taking a deep breathe)
How wild is that?
But my mind companion, reminded me that it ended well for her good. She met an amazing man she would have missed out on, or not have met ordinarily.
The movie title is “I Married Who?”
That was one unexpected turn, because the bride had a plan, had a list of what she would do and how.
By the way, I don’t recommend taking alcohol. People have found themselves in irreversible and damaging situations because of alcohol. Avoid it like a plague, please, because it is.
However, there are certain things that are beyond our control, that could affect us positively or negatively.
So if you are reading this, and you don’t like surprises or unplanned changes intruding in your space and imposing on your plans, you need Jesus more than anyone else.
- Jesus Christ is the only guarantee you have for everything working together for your good.
- You can’t control and predict everything.
- Unexpected turns are part of life and living. And that is totally out of your control.
- Jesus Christ is an anchor especially when nothing else makes sense. And is there a day that everything ever makes sense? Non!
What holds me and keeps me sane when things fell apart, is that Jehovah through Jesus Christ holds my future.
That and the truth that Jehovah is more powerful than any situation, circumstance or happenings.
He knew they could or would happen. Nothing catches God by surprise. Jehovah is all knowing, all seeing, Almighty, all sufficient.
Aaand nothing is out of His control.
I think it makes sense to form an alliance with Someone Who can do all things, so I can get some things done! I mean isn’t that what world leaders do among themselves?
“I don’t have this but you have it and I need it. Let’s form an alliance.”
Next thing you know a trade by barter arrangement is made for mutual benefits of all parties involved.
Unexpected turns are inevitable. They take you by surprise, sweeping you off your feet sometimes. But when you have Jehovah as your God, you call on Him and He will answer.
He may not answer as we expect Him, but He will answer in a way that will make you say with joy and thankfulness, “If not for that unexpected turn, I would not be in this happy state today“.
Like one of my favourite persons would say, “ It will end in praise”.
However, if you try to do life alone without Jesus Christ in your life, it’s will end in tears. That’s just the Truth.
“Lord Jesus Christ come into my life. Take control of my life. I surrender everything to your control. As from this moment, I am, yours and yours alone, completely. Oh Jehovah my God as I become Yours completely, complete me, in Jesus Christ name I pray, Amen.”
Read your Bible and pray everyday. For all round growth.
