His Plans

I've been you guys think that God had me in mind when He created my donor? Not that the donor's only purpose was to help me live, but that, God, when He created this other person, thought, "not only will you achieve fill in blank here, but because you lived, another will have life, too.

Just my ponderings for the day.....

From the movie Rudy, a quote from one of the priests:

"In all my studies and prayers, I have come to two incontrovertible facts. One, there is a God. Two, I am not Him."

Tough question you ask. Maybe it doesn't matter whether God has us in mind specifically under such events, but what we do with the gift given?

God is God. He is at the time your donor was formed. He is at the time you were formed. He is there when your tumors are growing. He is at the beginning of time when he made the first man and the first woman. He is at the end of time, knowing the answers to every question ever asked on this earth.

He knew you before he formed you in the womb, he knew the plans he had for you ... just as he knew your donor.

Did the happenings of the world thwart the intended plans of God, or did he allow them to be thwarted, small skirmishes in a larger battle never to be fully understood by human minds?

Someday, Amanda. Someday. In the meantime: know that each day he had planned for you was written before your first breath ... and he loves you more than you can fathom ... and that he is with you even now.

Blessings to you.
