I saw this image and honestly laughed out loud.
We've all had those moments when we've thought "Well, that didn't work". Actually, I've had a lot more "It seemed like a good idea at the time" moments. But the destination is the same.
It's fitting to title of an autobiography with a statement that sums up your life; right? If my life story were written from my limited point of view I could go on for days about things that didn't work. But I'm so glad I'm not in charge of writing my life story God is. And with Him it does work out. All of my failed "good ideas" serve a greater purpose. Knowing that allows me to just sit back and enjoy the ride.
For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Philippians 2:13 (NIV)
