Wednesday's #FaithandInk Devotional ==> Tears and Smears

"You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good..." ~ Genesis 50:20

Joseph spoke the above words after he had been through a lot. His brothers were worried that he would hold a grudge against them, because let's face it, he had every right to by human standards.

However, he looked past the bad intentions, past the hurt, the pain, the wrong doings, and he saw what God did through all of those bad things.




A while back, I had a bad day (to say the least). I was behind on my work and trying to get caught up when it happened… My cat knocked over a vase that I had sitting on my desk, soaking everything: my research, notes, to-do list, keyboard, mouse, computer, laptop, spare printer paper, 3 of my notebooks, my work binder, a book, and all my notepads, along with myself and the clothes that I was wearing... I could go on, but I bet you get the point.



As I sat there lividly looking at the water and desperately dabbing at the electronics, the words of Joseph …

Escaping situations that seem impossible.

Are you ready for an edge that will alter your life?
The Bible says that wisdom has the advantage of success.
Find real spiritual and emotional help by applying the precepts of wisdom from the Bible.

Learn how to escape the downward spiral of defeat, and how to choose a path to success. Wisdom’s High Way will help you restore confidence in your faith and turn bitter defeat into sweet victory.

Today's topic... Writing Plans

“I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles.” ~ Romans 1:13


When I read the above verse this morning, I couldn’t help but think of a book that I have been planning to write for almost three years now. It’s a very important book to me, and I know it will bring glory to God. However, while I have been planning to write it, things keep preventing me from doing so.



Have you ever experienced something like that? I am very encouraged that Paul went through the same thing. He planned to go to Rome to share the Gospel with the Gentiles and reap a harvest for God – but God was determining his steps and prevented him from doing so (Pro. 16:9). It wasn’t that Paul’s plans weren’t good; it just wasn’t God’s timing.


That’s the way I now see the book I was beating mys…
