One of the most defining moments in a person’s life is making it through a seemingly impossible situation. The trials we face mold us into the men and women we are meant to be. Overcoming difficulties helps us mature as followers of God.
The decisions we make not only affect us . . . but they affect the people around us as well. It’s the same when we follow God’s call for our lives. Discerning and acting on the will of God will impact your family, friends, and co-workers.
There are times when we’re walking down the road and can’t see what’s beyond the horizon. We can’t see the outcome God has in store for us. We don’t always get a preview of the grand finale God has prepared for our lives.

Submission is not a popular word. We want to be in control of our lives . . . not surrender our plans to someone else.
More often than not, God’s plan for our lives travels a different road than the plan we would have set for ourselves.
