Funny things happen in life, that’s what life is- things happening. With the funny things comes serious things, happy things, sad things, and so on.
Just when you things are going a certain way a wrench gets thrown in the plans. Then we are reminded of this:
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
No matter what our plans are, there’s always another plan, His plan.
When things aren’t going my way, I take a step back and look up and know God is up there laughing at my plans. He’s got something better in store, He needs me to do this before I can do that, he’s got it all figured out. When I start to get ahead of myself God always finds a way for me to hit the brakes, slow down, see Him in this. Sometimes you need to sit back and enjoy the ride, because while you’re so busy planning everything out you’re missing out on life, on what’s happening now. The ride won’t always be easy, sometimes you might want to close your eyes, but in the end it will be worth it.
