It’s an old story. We think life will go one way. We have it all planned out. We’re counting on it.
But then there’s a turn in the road. Or a rock in the road. Or a crater-like pothole. We face the unforeseen. Because life is full of the unforeseen.
We face the unforeseen. Because life is full of the unforeseen. As blessings sometimes come in waves, so also with life’s challenges.
And we don’t like the change we don’t foresee. We only like the change we hope for and plan ourselves.
So we lie awake at night, our mind alive with possibilities, some of them unpleasant. But others are … exciting. They have an aura of adventure to them.
When life has already offered up an array of unforeseen bends in the road, we arrive at a place of better trust. Anxiety bites at our hearts. But we remind ourselves of God’s previous faithfulness. His turning of the unforeseen into His Provision, into something good. Exciting. Like … adventure.
Change can be good. And if we let it, uncertainty can be exciting. Because God always has a plan. And God’s plan is always exciting. Always good.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
