Sometimes when things get tough, its easy to forget that God is in control.
When you sometimes feel like Job had it lucky, its hard to see a need to praise. But God is not asleep and He has a plan.
The bible says He has a plan to prosper us and not to harm us. That doesnt mean we won't have trials but that God's plan will ultimately lead for good. Sometimes a song can say it better than words. Below is a song by Petra. It's got a classic 80's feel but the chorus is something to latch onto. He's still got the whole in his hands.
