I heard another quote last night that went something like this: “We believe that everything will work out in the end. So, if everything is not working out, then it is simply not the end.”
I think that could be a quote that applies very well to my sermon last week. I talked about things “Not working out like I planned.” In that sermon I explained that God has a plan for our lives, but that plan may not always be easy to achieve or even understand. We may have to go through pain to get to God’s desired location.
Either way you express it – if life is hard then you are not where God wants you yet. That’s okay, it will work out in the end.
