Many plans are in a person’s mind, but the Lord’s purpose will succeed. - Proverbs 19:21 (CEB)
My dream has always been to work for one of the world peace organizations. I prayed for God to help me. Because I knew that having experience would make it easier to find a job, I planned to volunteer at the organization I hoped would hire me.
I was happy...
God’s plans for me may be bigger and better than my plans for myself.
