Sometimes a delay in your plans is God's protection.
Isn't it reassuring to know our salvation, our eternity, does not depend on how hard we work for it here on earth? Because of God's goodness, grace and mercy, we have salvation. Because we serve a good God, we WANT to do good works. Because we are made in His image, we desire to do good works and it is only to point others to Jesus. Glory to God only because of our good works! That is the result of our good works... for others to see God's glory!!!
