From today’s meditation from In Conversation with God:
So many people have their own plans for their own wellbeing that only too often they look on God simply as someone who will help them to carry out those same plans. The true state of affairs is quite the opposite. God has his own plans for our happiness, and He is waiting for us to help him accomplish them – and let us be quite clear about it: we cannot improve on God’s plans….He arranges everything in such a way as to make detachment from ourselves and from our future plans easy…so that we become saints.
A lot to pray about here!
