What are you pursuing? What is filling your time? How is it shaping you?

We’re human and we like to be in control and know how things are going to end. But how often do things actually play out exactly as we envisioned them? We don’t know the end. But God does. What may seem like a detour to us, may be a necessary path for God to get us where we’re going. What seems like two steps back for us, is actually necessary for God to move us forward.
