A Greater Plan

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28
Born into slavery, Harriet Tubman escaped to the north to freedom and became an abolitionist and activist. She was not content with just being free, but she made several trips back down south to free others.  
On one trip, she tried to bring her husband up north with her. However, when she got there, she learned that he had remarried another woman and had no interest in relocating or seeing her. At one point she questioned her future and asked the Lord to use someone else for these expeditions; but Harriet heard the Lord say it was her that He wanted.  
Harriet saw her limitations, but God knew her potential. Harriett didn’t believe she was worthy of being the “chosen one,” but God said that where He guides, he also provides. Just like God brought Harriet out, He can bring you out as well. God has something greater on the other side of your pain.  
We have spent the last few days talking about heart trouble. If you want to avoid heart trouble, trust God’s plan. His ways are greater than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Remember friend, He has your best interest at heart. You just have to trust that there is a greater plan at work.
