What I’m learning now is that what my eyes see as a winding highway to ‘my destination’, God laid out as a straight path there. What I think are several pit stops along the way to the “job of my dreams” are actually the tools… those learning experiences I need developed by the time I get there. He doesn’t divert His plans. It’s when we take our eyes off Him that we sidetrack ourselves. So my strategy is to just stay focused on Him and not let the ‘little stuff’ get in my line of sight or worry me or distract my thoughts with negativity.
The truth we can all cling to is… He is good and He is for us and that’s all I need to remember.
