Solomon says in Ecclesiastes Chapter 3, that eternity has been placed in the hearts of mankind.  What a gift!  It is a blessing when I can plan for the future and plan for the next step.

The flipside, though, is that I think I can plan for and control everything.  Oops!  That’s not how it works!  And attempting to control the future often involves my attempt to manipulate the people that are involved in that future.  Rerouting.  “Please make a U-turn at the first available opportunity!”  Let go and let God.
