Have you ever missed going someplace or doing something that you didn't want to miss? Do you remember how that felt? What did you do about it? Did you learn anything from it?
A few years ago I had to miss going to summer camp. I was really, really disappointed. I felt like I needed to go, that I needed to be rejuvenated. So I was pretty upset.
Well, God's got a good sense of humor, and He loves us far above what we can imagine ourselves. That week was the best week I had that summer. I was stirred up spiritually, calmed mentally, and joyful physically.
Sometimes God knows that we need to miss out on things in life because He has a far better plan for us. It can be simple things or it can be big things, but no matter the size it all comes down to this.
God loves each and every one of us so much that He wants to be involved in our everyday lives, guiding us step-by-step through every single moment of our day. So the next time you think you are missing out on something, look for what God might be doing for you or trying to teach you.
You are God's beloved child, and He wants what is best for you even if you don't particularly like how it's served up.
Keep your eyes on Him and nothing will be impossible to you.
