I've learned that even though I consider myself a planner, God is the Ultimate Planner. Sometimes my plans just don't align with His. He has the tendency to change them unexpectedly, leaving me confused and unsure. But that is not God's purpose. His purpose is to make sure we are obedient and have faith that everything will work out as He has already planned. We may not understand it at the moment, but it will all work out.
I've learned complaining gets you nowhere unless you are willing to make the change yourself. Eventually, people will stop listening if all they hear are complaints. Be courageous, make the change that is needed.
I've learned encouragement and support feels so good and helps you along a rocky path. It's what gets us through a rough day. It gets us through a rough chapter in our life. It makes it possible to slay the giant that has become our biggest obstacle.
