Last week I had the blessing of sharing thoughts with a group of writers. One of the things we discussed is how God makes good plans for His children. So often we seek our own pursuits, forgetting our loving Father has a purpose for our lives that far exceeds anything we could conceive. Of course, He doesn’t drag us down the pathway He chooses–He gives us free choice. But, the joy and peace and fulfillment we sacrifice when we seek our own pleasure rather than striving to honor Him!
