High expectations are put in place for our lives by family and friends, including ourselves but if those expectations are not lined up with what God has in plan, we then become confused and despondent.
Yet, we still wonder at times why things are not working out the way we planned or why it did not turn out to be what "you" expected. Funny too how we often blame God for the result of things we think we have control of.
"We plan the way we want to live but only God makes us able to live it."- Proverbs 16:9 (The Message)
It is best to acknowledge "The Big Man In the Sky" in every aspect of your life because He will direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6), and come what may you will become stronger, much wiser. Your life, may not be easy but you'll have a peace that surpasses all understanding; and hardship, yea they will come but God will give you the grace to face every strong wind. You will stand firm because your soul is anchored and hope in The One Who Has Power over both the body and soul. Let your dreams take flight but in God's way. For a safer landing you must take heed to this message: God holds the key to every door in your life. He is the Boss!
Note: Satan would make us feel like it is the end of our lives, but He got no power to say whether we live or die, whether we succeed or fail. He can do whatever he wants to us but God has the final say. So, who is the Boss of all Bosses and the Boss of your life? -God Almighty!
"Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?" - -Lamentation 3:7 (KJV)
God is God and He Always Will Be God!
"Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand." (Proverbs 19:21)- ESV
