Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 26 March – 2 April 2017
“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.”
Imagine this: You are holding a rope tight, keeping it from letting go. Now, we’ll pull the rope from the other end and you will keep on holding it on one side, resisting its movement. What will you feel?
Many of us have been in similar situations wherein we kept holding things that we should have let gone. For example, a relationship that is not worth keeping yet still staying in. We are afraid of losing something that is valuable to us even if it bringing us pain all over.
God never intended us to be hurt. He has created a path for us to follow. This is the best way for us to go. Sometimes though, we keep ourselves clinging into something or someone who is not for us. We are often carried away by our limited sight, understanding and belief which ends up being hurt.
As our lives as riding on the uncertainty of our world, we should put our trust and faith in God, that whatever we face or happens in our lives there is a plan that God has put for us better than what we expect.
When God closes a door, He opens a window.
