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. Jer 29:11
It’s very difficult to accept the fact that what trouble and suffering we face is within the plan of God…Difficult to come to terms that the Lord has allowed that suffering, that difficulty, that pain into our lives for a reason! How can our suffering and pain fit into His plan for us? We will never understand why….our faith is challenged in suffering and pain, and the only fact we can keep before us is, that, God loves us unconditionally and He wants us to be in an intimate relationship with Him, and only when we are in that close relationship will we be at peace in suffering. Suffering is going to be part of our lives, but when we are walking close to Jesus, we can have faith that He will take care of it all.
