Some of you thought your life would look different by this point. Maybe you thought you’d be married by now. Or still married at this point. Maybe you dreamed of having children and haven’t yet. Or maybe you thought you’d be settled into a lucrative career inching closer to retirement.
And then you wake up and look at the life you have.
You have a choice to be bitter over what could have been or to be thankful for what is. You can lament all those might have beens or rejoice that you are still alive and blessed with so much that you take for granted. And yes, I am preaching to myself.
You can’t go back and redo the past. You can’t go forward and manipulate the future. All you can do is live in the here and now, trusting the God who was and is and is to come to lead you through paths of righteousness to a good destination.
Bloom where you’re planted. Instead of always wondering why the grass is greener somewhere else, try watering your own yard and making your own life better. Maybe get God out of that co-pilot seat and let Him lead. And trust that He knows what He’s doing.
