“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
I am a HUGE believer that God has a plan for my life. I may think I know what I need, but God is the only one who truly knows what I need. Today, I planned out the rest of my class schedule for college to make sure I could fit in two majors and a minor. My hope is that it will all work out and that I’ll be able to take the classes I need in the order I want, but I know that isn’t going to happen because that’s not how life works. I often plan out my life only to find out that’s not what God wants for me. Everyone has experienced things in their life that they did not expect to happen. I sure have. But I later find out that even though those things may have been hard to go through at the time or maybe it wasn’t what I wanted to happen, it worked out for the best. I see that every day in my life. Everything happens for a reason. Everything. And only God knows that reason, but it is a good reason and it is all part of His divine plan for us. Take a break today and reflect on things in your life that may not have seemed to go right at the time but eventually worked out in your favor.
