The Spotlight: On When Life Doesn’t Go As Planned


Hi Dear Readers,

I hope you enjoyed the three posts I shared with you last week!  If you missed them, you can click on the category The Spotlight, to read them all.

This week’s posts deal with the delays, disappointments and dilemmas we face in life.  When things don’t go as planned, when things don’t go your way, when things blow up in your face, you still have choices.  Your perspective makes all the difference.  Do you let the frustrations decide whether you should be happy or not?  Or do you remain hopeful and use your circumstances to God’s glory?  My brothers are sharing lessons that will encourage us all, to trust in God’s deliverance and see the doors that he has opened to us, rather than focusing on what is closed.

Please read and be blessed, and be kind to share and drop a comment for the authours!

Promising talents of yesterday all of a sudden become untrainable and not skilled enough. If they are lucky they are put on performance improvement  plans which eventually ends up “managing them out”…

3. WHAT TO DO IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR by Matthew Winters

Have you ever been in a season of your life that seemed dark and hopeless? I think we could all say yes. In Acts 16, Paul and Silas were in a prison cell at midnight for obeying God. This just doesn’t seem fair. We feel the same way when hardships come our way. “It isn’t fair!” “Why did it happen to me?” “I don’t deserve this!”
