When I want a specific thing, I will take actions and steps in order to bring about a certain outcome because, in my mind, it will be a good thing. It may be but sometimes it comes to nothing, and I feel like I failed yet again. God, help me not be so impulsive at times and instead take the time to acknowledge You and talk to you about my plans. Please show me the way that is good in Your eyes. Forgive me when I mess up and restore me back into Your grace.
1 Samuel 3:18 – “Then Eli said, ‘He is the LORD; let Him do what is good in His eyes.'”
Amos 9:14 – “I will restore the fortunes of my people; they will rebuild and inhabit the ruined cities.”
