Life doesn't always go like we had planned or hoped that it would. But is that always a bad thing? I don't think so. Sometimes, I think, if we could see the end of our plans we would understand the wisdom of them going a different route. My son broke up with a girl several years ago and though he was young he had planned on marrying herand was crushed when it didn't work out. She had pressured him to do something he wasn't ready for at the time and gave him an ultimatum. That, in my opinion, isn't real love anyway. I told him hard as it was at the time that there was someone better for him. Now he has met a girl that is simply amazing. She is so worthy of being his wife. He would have missed out on her had he settled for second best. We settle for second best all the time due to lack of patience. We want it and we want it now. We would take pearls when diamonds were in the forecast. The Bible tells us that there is a way that seems right to man, but there way ahead is death. If we commit our plans to the Lord they will succeed and if we do not trust in our own understanding, not only will he make the road ahead without bumps and curves, but he will give us the desires of our hearts. So today let us clean out our ears and put on our Holy Ghost glasses. Great things are in store for us!
