The above statement really hit me!  Over the past few years I've wondered why in the world some things have happened in life. Why have people behaved so terribly or hurtful? Why have I've been dealt such a bad hand of health?  Why did we struggle so much to have a child? 

Our lives are a big canvas that God is painting. Have you ever painted a picture by numbers?  There are times it's awful and ugly. Once the picture is done it looks so much prettier.  That is our life. We don't see the whole picture at times. We will only see the ugliness. During these times we need to remind ourselves that we need to wait. The picture is going to turn out beautiful if we are trusting God. So often we make things ugly doing our own thing.
