On my way to take my last teaching certification test this afternoon, I took a turn and suddenly realized that I was going the wrong way. I panicked in the moments before I was able to realize how to steer myself in the right direction. At first I was afraid that my mistake would cause me to lose my testing appointment. When I started my journey, I thought I knew the route. After 9 months here, I thought I knew the way to go and it turns out I still can get confused.
I realize that this is a lot like life, we think we know exactly where we’re going and then God throws us a curve ball. In my own life I’ve been trying to figure out God’s plan. As far as family goes, I’m extremely blessed to have an amazing husband and to have moved to a fantastic town only a week after we got married without a clear plan for our lives. The path towards my career has been bumpy and nothing like I imagined it was going to be. That’s where I know I have to trust in God’s plan for my life. I know that if I put my trust in God I will find my purpose in due time.
Now some people may find it cliche, but one of my all time favorite poems is The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost and I find it fitting for this blog post.
