Having Faith When Things Don't Go As PlannedJun 26, 2023
Our lives can throw us unexpected challenges, disrupting even the best-laid plans. Uncertainty really tests our faith. Reflecting on past experiences, I realized how easily our carefully crafted plans could go awry. We might have chosen a different path if we'd known about this hard time beforehand. It's always 20/20 in hindsight. I never imagined myself becoming an entrepreneur growing up in a family of educators. Life had other plans for me. I learned that sometimes the unexpected can open doors we didn't know existed. Faith is important in these moments.
Hebrews 11:1 (NIV): Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV): Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Having faith doesn't mean life will be easy. I'd say the opposite is true. Faith gives you peace and strength in unexpected times. When unexpected obstacles happen, it's easy to wonder why they weren't part of our plan. Faith reminds us that things will get better and that the best is yet to come. Faith is a verb. We have to take action and trust in God's guidance. We're told to walk by faith, not by sight in 2 Corinthians 5:7. It means we're willing to keep moving forward even if we don't see the whole picture. Faith is based on personal conversations with God. During tough times, it gives us resilience. Whenever life takes an unexpected turn, hold on to faith. Trust in the One who holds our future. With faith, we can overcome any challenge and keep moving. When we walk with God anything is possible.
