God’s purpose for all of us is what makes the world work. Because He created this world, He had a plan from the beginning. However, people do not always understand that things happen for a reason. God is watching out for us and knows what He wants us to become, even though sometimes things will not go the way we hope. We fail in life, so that we can learn how to pick ourselves up by putting faith in God. However, the problem with this is that people do not have the faith to overcome many of the trials they face. Instead, people succumb to pressure and let other people’s actions influence their own. We must learn to put our trust in the Lord and allow Him to work His way with us.
