"But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul." ~ Deutoronomy 4:29
Whether we realize it or not, we are all seeking something. There is something about our humanness that always seems to leave us searching and seeking.
We were created by God to do God's will, but we always seem to find that God's will does not always align with ours.
I used to tell people that yelling at children is like steering your car with the horn.
I have to wonder if God ever feels that way with us?
Signs, plans, discoveries, and making goals are all things that as a human being we consider to be pretty normal. And then something happens and it ALL must change.
I don't know why we are surprised when we place our trust in human beings rather than God and things do not turn out as we have hoped.
I've learned through my own experiences that when this happens, God still has a plan. Maybe it wasn't what you had thought would be the outcome, but with God there is always a plan.
Instead of looking at what happened, look at what God has in store for you.
Stay in God's grip!

Dear God, while I know that I may not always realize the plans you have for me, may I never forget your love for me endures forever and through all things.
May I learn to trust you more deeply. Amen.
