Saying all that? What can I remember from all those times that things went exactly as planned? Almost nothing. The most memorable moments of my live are from times that didn't go exactly as I had planned. They weren't pleasant experiences one hundred percent of the time, but something positive always came out of them. I was able to learn more about myself, the people I was with, and God.
Pslam 33:11 states, "but the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations." I'm thankful that God is willing to expose the cracks in my plans. It's at these times, I remember how dependent I am in Him, and also how good He is to me.
