Words of Hope from Elder Carl Coloney

As of today, millions of people around the world have been affected by the Corona virus. Everyone has been affected in different ways and to varying degrees. Many ask why this is happening and what is God’s purpose in causing or allowing it to happen.

It might be too simple a thought but does God have millions of purposes that He is working in this time in history. Each one of us has an individual relationship with our God. Some very close, some far away, some nonexistent. He has said in the book of Jeremiah 29:11 “I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future”. I believe that His plans are unique and different for each and every one of us. A prayer of trust might say “Father I know you love me and have a very special plan for my life. Help me to be patient as you work it out through Jesus for your glory.” A song goes “You are the potter and I am the clay. Mold me and make me, this is what I pray”
