Roller Coaster Ride

Proverbs 16:1

“Here’s the thing about the visions we have for our futures: They are rarely God’s.” – Andrea Lucado. I know when I was in college I had a general plan for how my life would go. I would meet my future husband while at college, date awhile, get married, have 1.5 kids and a house in the suburbs with a white picket fence…all by the age of 30. Needless to say, that is the farthest direction from how my life actually went. I was single until I was 30 and made 3 major moves between states during that time!!! While on that roller coaster ride of life, I had time to really work on my relationship with God. I had always believed in Him but never really had a relationship with Him. Big difference!! I know God had that planned out the whole time and was probably laughing hysterically when he heard my “ideal” plans for myself. When we experience failures, disappointments or rejections; they may seem like a detour in our otherwise perfect plans but are actually part of a planned out itinerary developed by God for our ultimate good! Keep your focus on Him and He will keep you on course. God is good 😉
