Backfire

There are times in our life when the thought-through plans can backfire on us. We get discouraged and ask God, “why me?” Don’t fret. God’s already got something better in mind.

Though 102, I have not ceased to wonder about some life situations, Currently one concern is the coronavirus pandemic. I read that a new vaccine is to become available soon, and if God’s will, pray it will decrease cases of this dreaded disease. Prayer: Father in heaven, today …
