God has a plan to help us reach our true potential. His plan is comprehensive and takes into account many things that we cannot now see. We have to trust Him to lead us when the fog is too thick. God always keeps His promises. He may not give us everything we want, but He always gives us what we need in the end. Trust requires us to wait to understand how difficulties are helping us. Trust requires us to be flexible and accepting of new plans and opportunities that are placed before us.
