But he is singular and sovereign. Who can argue with him? He does what he wants, when he wants to. He'll complete in detail what he's decided about me, and whatever else he determines to do.Job 23:13-14 (MSG)
It's interesting to sit back and watch my daughters as they prepare to leave the nest. There are so many options open to them. I've watched them each rifle through different dreams and aspirations. Art school, free lance photography, art therapy, worship leader, mission field, state school, private school, internship…so many doors are open to them. It will be fascinating to see where their paths take them.
I look back at all of the options that were open to me. I think back at dreams and aspirations (some of them are hard to remember). Then I look at where I am in the journey. I am nowhere near where I had planned, dreamed or aspired to be. Nevertheless, I am right where God purposed.
And, He will complete, in detail, what He's decided about me. I take comfort in that. I'll just stick to the path ahead. No telling where it might lead.
