One man’s life goes different than he planned, and he gets bitter and withdraws.
Another man’s life also takes a different direction than he planned, but he adapts…
… And becomes fruitful and fulfilled… and is used by God to further His kingdom.
What was the difference for the man who was able to adapt?
He had faith God was writing the story of his life.
And he believed God’s version was better than what he could write himself.
Which is why it’s always wise to:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
~ Proverbs 3:5-6
