are things planned?
I don't know yet if things are going according to G0d's plan, and we haven't been clued in, or more likely, the order of the universe is based on randomness, chance and the luck of the draw. Trust in G0d is ok, but you better have a back up plan.

You don't know God very well
Trust in God isn't just ok, it's the only way to live. God made us, He loves us and He is always with us through good times and bad.

thanks for sharing. We might not understand why things happen, like not working out etc. But we should trust that Hashem(G-d) know what is best and does everything for the best.

G-d has a plan
This video is spot on! We like to think we can control everything to make life work together for our personal good. But, we have seen how seldom that works out for us. On the other hand, if we follow G-ds plan, it works out best for everyone. We all need to pray to get close to G-d and try to understand or at least follow His ways, His way says all things work together for good for those who love G-d and are called according to His purposes.
