Sometimes in life you find yourself attending appointments you’d never thought you’d need to go to, sitting in waiting rooms you never knew existed, ordering books you never thought you would use. Sometimes you feel like you hopped on board a rollercoaster when you were expecting a sedate train ride.

That’s life. The unexpected does happen. As much as we’d like to be in control of our lives we aren’t. Sure there’s a lot that we can determine even if it is just what we wear for the day, but there’s much that we can’t influence or for that matter change.

Fortunately, nothing takes God by surprise. Even when we are on uncharted territory we are not alone for He is there with us. And while we may be forging new paths and climbing new mountains we can know that God still guides our steps. In other words, God is there with us surrounding us with wisdom and strength, grace and peace for every step that we take.

“With all your heart rely on Him to guide you, and He will lead you in every decision you make.” (Proverbs 3:5 The Passion Translation)
