The Lord's Purpose Will Prevail

This is such a sweet reminder that I need today -- and maybe some of you guys do as well.

So often, I try to plan out my life. You know me; I'm all about lists. I plan things months in advance. I like to know what I'm going to wear for Christmas in October -- that kinda stuff.

But we aren't in control of our lives, as much as we like to think we are. At the end of the day, we have no choice but to trust God.

Everything on this earth is perishable.

We have to trust that if the Lord is calling us to something, he will provide. He will make the path straight.

Because God is eternal. God is loving. God is trustworthy.

Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all of your ways, submit to him and he will make your paths straight.1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
