As I reflect on my own life, I see God’s hand in everything. Discovering God's plans for your life starts with accepting that your life is not your own, and that detours can and will happen. Life without detours can be appealing, but what would we ever learn? What would build us and bring us closer to our creator?
Life with detours that lead us to back roads and new discoveries are the roads that grow our faith. Detours can be frustrating and confusing, but they take us to places we never imagined. Expect and accept detours. Learn and grow from them. When life brings unexpected changes, surrender your own plans and take a detour that will lead you closer to God.
"For whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it".
