It's ok to change your plans.

Sometimes in life there are decisions to be made.
Decisions that your mommy and daddy can't make for you.
Because they are decisions about your life.
And you want your parents to just tell you what to do.
Even though in the back of your head, you know what choice needs to be made.
It isn't always an easy choice.
You have to pray.
A lot.
Because He is really the only person that can help you make your decision.
And in the end, it doesn't matter what other people think.
It doesn't matter what everyone else is doing.
It may mean that what you had planned for your life has to be put on hold.
And that you can't do exactly what you've been dreaming about.
But life has a funny way of  working itself out.
And as soon as you just do what feels right instead of doing what everyone else thinks is right,
You will feel like it is happening the way it's supposed to.
Just put your life in His hands.
He knows what you need.
And He wants you to get what you want.
He just knows how to do it better than you do.
Sometimes we can't see the whole picture.
We are just looking so closely at one corner of the picture.
And so nothing makes sense. 
We can't figure out what we are looking at.
But He sees the whole picture. 
That is why we need Him in our life.
He can help and guide us when life seems to be spiraling downward. 
There is nothing that happens to us that we can't grow and learn from.
I know this kind of turned into a ramble and may not make a lot of sense, 
But basically what I'm trying to say is that life doesn't always go the way you planned.
And it's okay.
Because it will work out. It really will.
We just need to let it.
