I remember when I was young girl laying on my bed planning out my future. I was going to finish college(I was going to be a Psychologist), meet and marry the man of my dreams (he was going to be a professional baseball player) and have 2 children (twin boys preferably although a boy and a girl would be find). It makes me laugh to think about it now.
Where would those plans have taken me? Would I have been happy? Would I have served the Lord faithfully? I can say with all of my heart that I am so grateful that God has a plan and a purpose for my life and it's His purpose that prevails.
Many are the plans in a man's heart,
but it is the LORD's purposethat prevails.
That's how I know that I can, " Trust in the LORD with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways acknowledge him, and he will make my paths straight." (Proverbs 3:5-6 )
