"God's plan isn't just for the good things and the highs and the successes and the As; it includes loss as much as victory, failure as much as accomplishment, heartbreak as much as happiness.
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
----------He holds me together.
originally i just wanted to copy that first part, about how His plans bring both good and seemingly bad things, because it is something that reminds me that yes He is sovereign, He is still in control. but then i re-read the verse and i realised how much more hope, how much more joy there is when you read both together, because "in Him all things hold together", and that includes me, through the loss and the failure and the heartbreak.
