Sometimes it doesn’t matter how hard you try things just don’t go the way you want. You can do your very best to make it work and still things don’t come out as planned. I have learned that being a child of God gives God permission to work in our lives. Work is not always fun, sometimes it’s hard, sometimes it hurts. But I know that if we submit to the thing that He is doing, we will see growth and change in our lives. Sometimes things seem to be happening TO us but in reality they are happening FOR us.
