Week 2: God’s Plan May Be Painful
God is writing His story. We get to participate in His story as we live our lives. Sometimes God’s plan for our lives may involve unfair circumstances, disheartening events or outright painful situations. As evidenced in the life of Joseph, we can see that trusting God’s plan involves our taking a longer view – a view that sees the entirety of the story that God is writing in eternity and how sometimes the pain that happens in our lives is part of God’s redeeming work. A deeper understanding of God’s story comes from understanding who God is and that in His goodness and sovereignty He allows us to participate in His story of redemption.
