Note from Heather: Though she does not know it, Janelle’s monthly contribution hit so close to home that I sat back and cried after reading it. In faith, we make plans based on our current understanding and limited (finite) sight. By that same faith, and even in our confusion, when those plans unravel before our very eyes, we choose to trust in the sovereign God. Swallowing our pride we cast aside our doubts, send up our praises and thanks, embrace the new journey, and then, we set out once again.
Heather recently made this comment, “It seems the planning takes longer than the doing.”
Understatement if ever there was.
She’s incredible, so she’ll succeed. What about the rest of us?
Because even when presented with a reasonable situation, it is equally reasonable to misread and mishandle the thing. As purposeful adults who wish to do well by our careers, our communities, our families, even our God, we try to learn, grow, work hard and get it right.
