God's Game Plan

Life sometimes is like a game of Solitaire.


Sometimes you win the first hand you are dealt.
Sometimes you have to go back and start the game over to win.
Sometimes no matter how many times you start over you just can't win that hand.


When you win the first hand you are dealt you are ecstatic. confetti flying in the air happy. This was God's plan for you in this moment.
"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."  Romans 8:28 ESV
 
When you have to go back and start over again, you are sometimes discouraged but you start over again, because this is God's plan. Don't let the fear of failure creep in.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."  Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

When you lose no matter how many times you have tried.  Don't lose faith and instead rely on God.
Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

When we face insurmountable challenges, we can turn to the all-powerful Creator God. His strength and renewal can help us face our fears and do the impossible.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill
