I forget that God has a bigger plan for me than I do for myself. I forget that  He has a better vantage point from where He stands than I do. At times I get impatient with my current stage. Sometimes it feels like I could do so much more in other places or with different people. Fortunately enough I was reading a friend’s blog, Rivers && Roads and came across this quote that you see above. How humbling it was for God to remind me that He doesn’t “slow” me down to hold me back but to prepare me. To grow me. Because He loves me.
