God is always working

My friend told me a story the other day about her little boy. She picked him up around noon from preschool on a half day and was going to take him to Olive Garden for lunch. She had explained to him that morning what was happening that afternoon, but when she arrived he was crying. His teacher told her that he was upset that he had not had a lunch to eat that day! Of course she reminded him that he was going somewhere yummy and later I was sent a picture of him holding a breadstick with pure joy in his face. As soon as she told me this story I heard God whisper, “There’s a lesson in this.”

How many times do we find ourselves in less-than-ideal circumstances and we fall apart? We dig ourselves into holes of despair and wonder why God is letting us go through this. What does God say about our futures, though?

God doesn’t promise an easy life, but He does promise good for those who love Him. So our new motto has become, “There are breadsticks in our future.” Did you ever forget your lunch and have to watch everyone else eat in school? So sad. For little guys, devastating even. This little guy thought that was his story for that day. But he had those warm, glorious Olive Garden breadsticks waiting on him – not some packed lunch that he has every day! We may sometimes feel like we’re stuck in situations that seem miserable and there’s nothing we can do about it. But we have no idea what God has just around the corner.
