Have you ever seen your plans go down the drain, but then things worked out better than you expected? Remember in 2013 when the Toronto Raptors tried to trade Kyle Lowry to the New York Knicks but it got cancelled at the last minute? But six years later Kyle Lowry is a perennial all-star and the Raptors win the championship? That worked out.
I remember applying for a course to Teach English as a Second Language in downtown Toronto only to never get accepted. I ended up taking TESL at Canada Christian College and met my wife. That worked out!
I’m sure during this season we’re in you’ve seen many plans go down the drain, I know I have. At first I’m usually a little disappointed, but then I think about the times plans didn’t work out the way I hoped and ended up so much better! If there were two verses that sum up this season for me it’s been, “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9 and “My ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9.
Over the past year we have continued to see God at work in the lives of boys and girls in unexpected ways. I hope you are encouraged by our spring newsletter as we share with you one of those ways.
