At one point in my life I found this so frustrating, because no matter how I tried my plans were not working out the way they were supposed to. It took some time for me to realize, that life is not about my plans but about the Lord’s plans for me. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This was a verse my mother gave to me during a time where I was struggling to figure out who I was as a single adult out on my own. It is easy to think that our parents have it so easy, until we reach that point in adulthood where reality sets in. Plans change, responsibilities increase and we discover that life as an adult is hard.
Once I accepted this reality, my perspective slowly began to change. At one of my first professional jobs I had a friend make a comment to me on my first day, that I would love working there because every day was a new adventure. Wow, I loved that! How that changed my perspective on life. When we begin to look at our lives as an adventure, it can make the bumps in the road a little easier. Change becomes more manageable, because you get excited about the unknown and the adventures ahead. Don’t let the turns in the road get you down. Instead know that this life is a daily adventure and that the Lord has a fantastic journey just waiting for you around the next bend.
