The Plan That Failed...

"You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people." - Genesis 50:20 (NLT)

Two weeks has passed since a stranger set out to tip my life off balance. God had other plans.

He used that situation to strengthen ME fill up an empty spot in MY heart ... and to re-confirm that what He had brought together many years ago could not be brought undone now.

What is so amazing about the 'disruption' to my life from two weeks ago? It's the fact that so many people in my life are now better off because of it ... especially ME!

I was blown away when I read this verse from Genesis, as it epitomises the recent upheavel in my life, and how God has used it for His glory ... once again!

Thanks and praise to our Wonderful Lord and Saviour for blessing me so much.


  1. Yes, that is a great verse and brings much encouragement that He can undo what the enemy means for our harm.
    Love, Paula

  2. Paula? Everything OK? I'm scarce these days, I know, but you are on my heart. Yes, this verse comforts.


  3. Praise God for this scripture, Paula! I hope you are okay!

  4. Hi sweet friend. Wow. How fitting is this verse. I love how God will use what was intended to harm us to strengthen us. xoxo

  5. I'm grateful the LORD's presence is with you and I pray for God's divine will for your precious life and that of your sweet daughter.

    Remain well and encouraged in the Lord dear one.

  6. I'm s happy that God was able to bring such good from a not-so-good situation.

    He is faithful. And He will do it!
