Detour to Your Dreams

We can make our plans, but the
Lord determines our steps.—Proverbs 16:9 (NLT)

When life throws a roadblock in your path—whether
it comes in the form of illness, or an accident or a
job loss—look again. It may be only a jog in the road,
a different route leading to real fulfillment. A detour
can sometimes lead you to your dream.

Keep my faith from ebbing, Lord. When obstacles arise,
help me to trust Your plan.
