The prophet Jeremiah encourages you to trust God through the hard times and remember His good plan is being unfolded one day at a time.

Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  (ESV)

One of the saddest stories ever told was of a person who worked very hard and sacrificed for years to reach a certain goal -- and when at long last he achieved what he wanted . . . it did not bring the satisfaction he hoped for.  God knows the end from the beginning and He has planned the future for each  of us.  He longs to bring that future to pass in your life, with His goals and accomplishments.

Left alone, you might choose a path to the future without pain or hardship.  Yet the Lord says, "Count it all joy when you encounter trial".  In the facing of adversity, you find the gateway to life's greatest accomplishments and the deepest relationships.  Trust God with your future and you find true satisfaction.
