I don't know. God works in mysterious ways. Even things that appear to be a bad thing sometimes turn out to be the exact thing necessary for his bigger plans. I am reminded of a boy who wants a toy in a toy store. The mother needs to purchase the toy before the child can take it home and play with it, so she has to take the toy from him briefly at first in order to buy it. The boy does not understand and cries out loud and suffers needlessly.
Whenever I am like that boy, whenever I don't understand what it is that God is doing in my life, I am quick to despair. However, it is foolish. I cannot possibly understand God and what He has in store for me. Instead of crying out loud, I should trust in Him even more, because I believe in Him, in his goodness, his power, and his wisdom.
Application: be thankful for all that God is sending my way
