God’s Bigger Picture

Sitting in a waiting room this past week a song came on that took me back in time.

Way back.

I got to thinking about my life then. My hopes and my big dreams – how I thought things would turn out. I thought I had a pretty good plan.

But I sit here today smiling. I sit here thinking about an amazing life that God has blessed me with. I sit here thanking a much bigger God for patiently listening to me then, but for gently guiding me in a different direction.

Sometimes we think we know best, but I’m so thankful that God sees a much bigger picture. I’m so thankful that He knows what we need even when we don’t.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
