When I was a child I wanted to grow up and be a famous actress, God had other plans.
I wanted to live in a big city far from my family, God had other plans.
I didn't think I wanted children, God had other plans.
As a young adult in the career world I enjoyed my career and wanted to climb the corporate ladder, God had other plans.
I wanted to be a leader and trainer, God had other plans.
God's path for my life has not always been one that I have seen as clear but he has used all of my life experiences, good and bad, for His glory.
If I could tell my younger self something (or anyone who is searching in life for the "right path"), I would tell them to get to know God and find out what He wants for your life. It may look a little different than the ideas you had for your life, but once you start living for Him first, everything else will come together. That doesn't mean it will be easy but you will be filled with a peace that gives you the strength to stay the course.
I am excited to see what else God has in store for me and I am so glad He has plans for my life!
