When looking out at the Merci’s Refuge site from the Pregnancy Resource Center, it is difficult to see the progress that is happening. Nothing can be seen, other than a very large pile of dirt and some construction equipment. From our point of view, it doesn’t seem as though much is happening. But when you walk around that dirt pile, you are able to see the amazing progress that has occurred! It is a beautiful reminder, that God can be working in awesome ways in our lives, but sometimes all we are able to see is the “dirt pile.” However, beyond that “pile” is something unimaginably wonderful that God has planned for us! Sometimes all we need do is remember to trust Him. Even when we can’t see how He may be working at the time, we just need to give it all to Him, and trust the Master Planner.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!” Jeremiah 29:11
