I don’t know what the Lord has planned for each of us individually but I know that His goal is for each of us to be happy. Specific days will, most certainly, not be happy but, no matter the path we take, hope will lead us to happiness. There will be times in life when only a single strand of hope will be left to guide us through the raging storm but we must faithfully hold on and trust that it is enough. Regardless of how we feel, He loves us. We will not understand all sorts of things that happen during the course of our lives but He does and will never leave us alone.
