Everyone has their own fairytale. Whether that fairytale involves a man and woman falling in love and becoming a family, or an individual pursuing their dream career and succeeding beyond expectations. The point is, everyone has a dream and an ideal way to achieve that dream.
My fairytale involves me finding a man who sweeps me off my feet, wants a gazillion children like I do ,and wants to save every lost child! My fairytale involves me not going to college and instead getting married and starting a family. My fairytale involves me being able to plan my future and know exactly what is going to happen and when it will happen.
MY fairytale sounds wonderful to me. However, that is not how it has happened. I am about to graduate college with a bachelors degree and plan on getting my masters shortly thereafter. I am currently single and do not have plans to get married in the near future. I have absolutely no idea what is going to happen or when anything will happen.
GOD has His own version of my fairytale. When I realized that my way was not how things were going to happen, I was devastated. I had an extremely difficult time working through my feelings of disappointment. However, now that I can see clearly and look back, I am so incredibly thankful that God’s way is not my way. His way is so much better. He has a plan for my life that I cannot even comprehend. He is going to use me for His glory and I could not ask for a better calling. Maybe God will still give me a man that will sweep me off. Maybe God will still bless me with children. He also blessed me with the ability to go to college and not only work towards my Bachelors, but also make plans to get my masters. He blessed me by not allowing me to know the future, because I could never understand the amazing things He has planned for my life.
Our lives are supposed to serve such a great purpose. We are all here for a reason. God intentionally created each and every one of us to fulfill a purpose that is so vast and extraordinary. All we have to do is let go of control and hand our lives to the one and only God of the universe.
