I can't begin to count how many times I've had a plan that I was convinced was the best way to go... and it either didn't work out as I envisioned it or something else happened instead. And, in many instances, the thing that happened turned out to be much better than my original plan.
As a Jesus-follower, I believe that God has a plan and that he can still accomplish what he wants to accomplish even when he doesn't follow my plans (imagine that!). I've come to realize that I don't always know what the best plan is. One of the reasons for this is that I have a limited point of view.

This Sunday, June 7th, we'll be taking a look at how the Apostle Paul had to deal with his own plans falling through. How did he respond? He rejoiced. WHAT?! How could he do that? Join us and we'll talk about it. You may find that following Paul's example will help you when your own plans don't work out the way you'd like them to.
