I don’t think life is all about “God’s plan for me” – at least not the way you hear that slogan used and abused. I think God has lots of hopes and dreams for us, like I have for my kids or grandkids. I want everything in the world for them. But where my life’s journey takes me is about the choices I make including (maybe especially) my mistakes. It’s about how I recover and move on from there. Then there are the things that are out of my control. Or out of your control.
It’s a journey of discovery. A journey we make together.
Do you ever feel like you’re not really living your life, just watching it pass by outside the window as you drive along? Meaning in life is not found in one overarching truth or one secret prayer. Meaning in life is found in the little things, paying attention to the moments and sharing those moments with one another in communion with our Creator.
Take a moment, with us, for yourself. Help us find out what God has in store for all of us.
