The universe is an interesting place. Everything is in cosmic order. That’s not to say we don’t have a ‘say’ or choices in what happens in our lives. But we do not control everything. Ultimately, God is in control. The more we learn to trust him, the better off we will be. Some imagine God to act as a significant obstacle stopping us from promotion at times. I hate when people say, ‘Why God, why?’ It is a pet peeve of mine. God is the opposite of what they think. He wants to see our dreams happen. We can be co-workers with God, but we have to do our part. We can’t be stagnant and expect him to do everything, nor can we blame him when things don’t go the way we would like. Part of being an adult is realizing that we can’t have everything we want in this life. We can work towards goals and try to accomplish them. But ultimately, God is the one in the driver’s seat. He wants what’s best for us and to see us happy.❤️
