    One thing I try to always always remember is that my plans aren’t my own. They are HIS plans and as much as I want to be in charge of things, HE has it all pieced together and no matter how hard I may try to influence circumstances, the plan HE has for me is exactly what I need.

      I saw something recently that made me laugh, but it really is true, too, Stephanie. It said, “We plan … God laughs.” We can plan all we want, but we truly are not in control. God is, and His plan is greater than anything we could ever imagine!

    Sounds like a good book. We do have to stop and submit to Gods plan. We have to slow down and listen to make these changes

    I think submitting to Him can be the greatest test of our faith but it is one that makes us the strongest in Him. Thanks so much for sharing this!

    This sounds like a good book. I think we have all struggled with the need to control our paths instead of walking in faith.

    It sounds like a really interesting book, Shirley, thanks for telling us about it. It’s funny how God uses the strangest things to get our attention. The older I get, the more I try to listen for the message on a daily basis. Sometimes, I get it the first time ;).

      I really have enjoyed going through this book, Anita. Doing a series on it, I really had to stop to focus on what each chapter I was showcasing had to say. I digested it better this way, too! It was powerful and had a great impact!
