I used to think a lot about the future because I could anticipate what I wanted to happen. If I didn’t like the way things were, I could imagine the way that I desired them to be. I seldom considered how God was going to be involved in my plans. Whether or not the events I wanted to happen came to be never really mattered because they were all an illusion. I was either happy if they were fulfilled or disappointed if they weren’t. Either way, I wasn’t concerned whether the Lord was with me or not. Now, my life is different. I am enjoying every moment because I am trying to continually abide in fellowship with Him. My life situations change continually but He is always my stability. I don’t have to create my environment because God’s Kingdom is the domain in which I want to dwell. I pray that He will make all of my plans fail if He is not the center of each of them.
