To Come to a Place of Rest

I wonder if the Lord is ever amused at our minuscule plans that we think are so grand, because He knows His master plan is so much grander — it exceeds deeper & fuller than we ever thought possible. In these times of sanctifying growth, painful stretching and earth shattering moments that He reveals not only His true will, but He reveals more of His unadulterated self to us.

I used to think the most beautiful stories were the ones where dreams came true. But perhaps the most beautiful stories are the ones where the plot changed to something completely different. Not because of how things didn't go the way they wanted, but because the journey was more beautiful than the ending (however glorious and beautiful the ending was.)
