“Things don't always go the way that we want them to go. We need to trust in the Lord that He already has a plan for our life that is much better than we could ever have.

Jeremiah 29:11 - 'For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”

—Ramona Stowe
