We're not always going to understand everything that happens in our lives. But just because it doesn't make sense doesn't mean God isn't working. You may not see it yet, but He's going to work everything out in your favor.

I have developed a disease that will be for the rest of my life. You encourage me that I am stronger than I think. Christ has a plan for me. I don't understand why I've been hit with this disease, yet I know my life is in God's plan. I've learned patience in Faith to wait for for God's timing to be healed and debt free due to missing a lot of work without pay. God has placed my Emloyers to give me forgiveness for the hours I could not work. The Home Depot store 2841 is showing love and caring for me. THD gave me emergency sick pay. I used all the sick pay. I still miss work without pay. They are working on giving me a grant to take care of me. Even if I don't get the grant I still love who I am working for. I trust God will still work to find a way out of this debt.. Thank you God for finding this employer for me. Thank you Joel for being who you are. You inspire me to keep walking in God's plan.

When I was four years old, I got pushed into a pool. I didnt even know how to swim. I also didnt understand why someone did that to me, I was just four years old. Luckily my dad saw me and came to my rescue. 12 years later, I had a take my final exams into high school and i had an English paper which i always had nothing better than a D. I was really scared that i would fail. In the exam, we were to write about how we saved someone and immediately that past experience came into mind and I wrote it. When my English results came out, I got an A which was my first time in my life. I was so shocked but God used my bad break to give me something way better in the next 12 years. Thank God for everything.

This particular sermon is truly good. I feel he needs a sermon based off repentance! People are living the โ€˜hypocrite lifestyle,โ€™ and only deceiving themselves. Repentance meaning; to turn from sin. To follow Gods moral laws. The โ€œTen Commandments.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜Š

My testimony! So a month ago my account had in 5 cents , I had no money , no food , a single mother of 1 with no help from my childโ€™s father . Every door I tried said no , crying and praying night after night not knowing how I will get through, my business is temporarily closed and I donโ€™t even know how Iโ€™m going to reopen . One morning I got a call about a deal and had 2k in my hand that same morning ... a blessing , I praised God and cried, I was able to buy food and buy my sonโ€™s school necessities. Thank you God ! I still need to reopen my store but Iโ€™m leaning not on my own understanding , weapons will form but they will not prosper , my faith is greater than ever because I have seen the mercy of the lord . Iโ€™m here because of Godโ€™s favor .

Yes Michelle I have been in your shoes, I know the pain you are going through, trust in the Lord, he will provide for you and your son, the boy's father is a worthless person who does not deserve you both, God will provide a better man for you both - you will succeed in your business - with God's direction and there will be an abundance of blessings for you and your son.

I so needed this!! I have a Airbnb that has been doing so well financially. I recently accepted a booking on the air bnb platform unfortunately the ppl was not good ppl looking at video from my ring camera I seen them with several guns! The bad guest checked out days later new guest checked in and someone came back to my home a shot my house up, innocent ppl got shot and injured and my property was messed up really bad. I kept asking God why, why is this happening. Why did innocent ppl get shot on my watch at my property. This video gave me closure. God has other plans for not only me but also the innocent couple that had to go thru this. Please keep us in your prayers!

Thank you Preacher Osteen. Your messages inspire me. I need to trust God when something doesnโ€™t make sense. What I cannot see does not mean God is not in control. The hands of God are setting me up for the increase. God uses bad breaks to bring me to the destiny. Say No to sourness. Stay in peace. Stay in faith. Stay in Godโ€™s favour. Please pray for me to keep a good attitude to people who are bad to me.

โ€œI didnโ€™t know that God used bad things to bring you into your destiny.โ€ ALL things work together for good. I am currently going through something that God is trying to make me see had to unfold. The story has to unfold. It has to. The good, bad, all of it. The pieces have to come together and it will be a glorious unfolding. I needed to hear this, this morning.
