The Master Builder Several years ago the state was rebuilding an overpass near my house. Three lanes reduced to one, transforming a morning commute into a daily stew. The project, like human history, had been in development since before time began. My next-door neighbors at the time were highway engineers, consultants to the department of transportation. “It’ll take time,” they responded to my grumbles, “but it will all get finished.” They had seen the plans. In the Old Testament story of Joseph, God allows us to study His plans. Brothers dumping brother. But watch the Master Builder at work. He cleared debris, stabilized the structure. And the chaos of Genesis 37:24…They cast him into the pit..became the triumph of Genesis 50:20— life for many people. God redeemed the story of Joseph. Can’t He redeem your story as well? From You’ll Get Through This

1 Sarah R = "We often want to know our future, where God is taking us, what He is doing. Yet somehow I suspect if we were to see God's blueprints for our lives ahead of time... we would be scared and immobilized. God gives us only as much as we can handle, step by step, building us up and preparing us so that when we get to a particular hurdle in the road we are already ready for it."
2 Sarah R = "Genesis 37:23-24 "So it came about, when Joseph reached his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his tunic, the varicolored tunic that was on him; and they took him and threw him into the cistern. The cistern was empty; there was no water in it.""
3 Sarah R = "Genesis 50:20 "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.""
