In life there are so many changes that occur on a regular basis it can be overwhelming. Some changes aren’t as big as others, but then sometimes life changes are HUGE! My family and I have recently had a lot of changes occur in a relatively short amount of time. While it has been a little stressful, I think these changes are working together for a greater good for our family. All of this has caused me to reflect recently on something I hadn’t thought of up to this point in my life.
Think about the times when you have made plans and they don’t quite go the way you hope, and you know what they say about best laid plans and whatnot. Anyway, I was thinking about this on a much grander scale, and I thought, “Does Heavenly Father feel this way as well sometimes?” Does He have plans for us and our lives, but then because of our actions or the actions of others things get messed up? How does He handle this type of disappointment on a much a larger scale, and with so many of His children? I wonder if it upsets Him as much as it upsets us when our best laid plans go to waste.
Of course we know that when plans don’t go the way they should Heavenly Father is able to take them and make them better for our profit and learning. That is where the changes that sometimes happen can be good for us. It amazes me that we have someone that cares so much for us that He is able to even take the follies of life and us them for our benefit. Here is to accepting the change of plans and numerous changes that occur in our lives, and learning what we need to from them.
