"Take time to think about what God has done for you. Let the Holy Spirit remind you of how God's great grace has rescued you. No, many things may not have gone the way you hoped. But even in those disappointments, God is still God. He may have been directing you in a better direction. He may have been protecting you from harm you didn't see. He may have been testing you to strengthen you. He may have been stripping away some attitudes that hinder your relationship with him. He may have been preparing you for a deeper walk with him. Recognize that God is at work, and give thanks."
