Things don’t always go our way. It’s true – and we don’t like it one bit. We have everything mapped out, how something’s supposed to happen, and nothing turns out “right.” I’ve been there. We all have. But it’s in these moments that I feel God’s hand on the situation, saying to trust in His plans for me and not my own. It’s when He gets my attention and reminds me of the blessings that I don’t see – and sometimes won’t until later. I recently read a devotional via email called “When Plans are Thwarted” by Os Hillman from TGIF: Today God is First. I think it’s a good example of these moments.
