His plan is to make us more like Jesus, and God has a million ways he can do this. When we live this way, it’s freeing. We no longer have to worry if we have ‘missed’ God’s plan, married the wrong person, took the wrong course, or moved to the wrong address. God will use all our circumstances, both the good and the bad, to make us more like Jesus. His plan for our lives is never off track.
