In no way is it enough to set out cheerfully with God on any venture of faith. You must also be willing to take your ideas of what the journey will be like and tear them into tiny pieces, for nothing on the itinerary will happen as you expect.
...in His grip.
My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts, says the Lord. And My ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts higher than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
Coach's tip - Never say these things:
- They didn't get back to me.
- I thought someone else was taking care of that.
- No one ever told me.
- I didn't have the time.
- I didn't think to ask about that.
Whatever the roadblocks, it's your job to remove them. If not, you'll be perceived as one of them.
