Life’s Curve Balls

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.—Psalm 37:23 (NLT)

It’s been said that man plans and God laughs, but it can be upsetting when it happens to you. Trust is the key to keeping your chin up when your best plans and the future you had mapped out suddenly take a sharp, unexpected detour. Only God knows what tomorrow holds. By developing a strong faith, you can confidently walk wherever God calls you to go.

Lord, I’m doing my best to be faithful and flexible, to follow Your lead anywhere it takes me.
