Knowing the Will of God can be difficult. Trying to walk with confidence in His Will is difficult when we can only see as far as the next step.
But God’s plan is not based on our understanding, but on our obedience to simply take the next step. To do what is right today. He has the plan, and it is nail down. But we don’t have the eyes to see the nails. Our eyes were not made to see the nails. We have eyes to see the path before us today.
Sometimes we get a glimpse of what is ahead, but never the whole path. Maybe that is because seeing the path is not the most important thing. What is important may be, more about who is leading on the path, and the relationship that is created in the journey. Today I think I’ll get away from books that tell me about Christ, and go outside and walk with Him.
Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not calamity to give you a future and a hope.”

Diane,It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday and sharing thoughts. It's so amazing (but truly a 'God-thing') to meet others to whom God has been teaching some of the same lessons. I am enjoying reading your blog and am ordering your book. I looking forward to getting into it :-)Blessings!
