Listen to advice and accept discipline,
and at the end you will be counted among the wise.
Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
– Proverbs 19: 20-21 (NIV)
Like most, we have a really hard time putting all our problems in His hands. The verse above is a reminder that God has plans for us and that no matter what plans we set for ourselves, His will prevail. It can sometimes be hard to know what our purpose is, but I feel better just knowing that everything happens for a reason (good or bad) and that He is working on our story.
The Story Devotional is a great companion to The Story, a Bible translation that transforms the Bible into one chronological story instead of broken up into separate books.

This devotional is for anyone who's looking to find a closer relationship with God and His purpose for your life.
