Are there days when you feel swallowed up by life? Worry, disappointment, sorrow, and frustrations tend to suffocate our hopes, dreams, and prayers. Perhaps there are days when you feel like taking the first flight out of town. You wouldn’t be the first.
When we reflect upon our lives and see the hand of God carefully crafting and directing us according to his purpose and will, we come upon a different story that reflects God’s mercy and grace. Despite ourselves, it’s amazing how God’s will has a way to overrule our heart’s desire. God’s plans circumvents our plans. Yet, in doing so, God’s mercy and grace proceeds to give us far more than our hearts could have ever imagined.
