I like a plan. My stress rises when I'm faced with uncertainty, especially when it comes to the people I love. I want to be in control. At worst, I demand to be in control. The reality, of course, is that while my thirst for control appears altruistic, it's usually about my comfort levels.
What I need is wisdom and discernment to navigate life. God is the one who makes straight our crooked paths
I also like adventures! I especially enjoy being on adventure with the people I know and love. By their very nature, adventures are filled with unknown and unaccounted for elements. There are surprises. Life is an adventure. Marriage is adventure. Raising teenagers is an adventure!
There are moments when my wit and strength is overshadowed by powers greater than I possesses. This is good... very good. In fact, this is evidence that God is at work in me. My thirst for adventure requires faith in Him alone. My desire for control requires faith in the fact that He is ultimately in control and loves my loved ones more than I.
His plan is better than mine, always. Following Him by faith leads me into the unchartered promised land of hope, faith, and love.
He has prepared a place for us.
