Life has a way of interrupting our plans. There are days we feel like giving up. Tired, we stop struggling momentarily. No matter how many times we move the pieces, we can’t seem to find a solution to our problem.
Have you ever been there?
Here’s the thing.
The truth contained in those two words is we’ll never be without problems. So, we must find a way around, or through, whatever is keeping us from completing our tasks.
Another truth is we can make plans, but it is God Who directs our steps. If He chooses a detour along the way, then He’ll guide us back to our unfinished tasks and give us the courage to begin again.
Our goal is to trust Him and His timing.
Take courage, my friend. It will all work out in the end if we don’t give up.

Thank you for this encouragement, Gail! Sometimes it is hard to keep going. May we reach out and lift one another along the way. God bless you!
So true! I’m so glad the Lord gave us friends to walk this journey with us. I’m sure I’m leaning on a few, right now. Thank you for your encouraging words! God bless you for all you do to help your readers. 💗
Yes, I’ve certainly been there, Gail. Thank you for the reminder. Churchill’s quote is spot on!
You are proof, Jill. You never gave up! I have A Father for Bella on my TBR list!!
Hi, Zina. I don’t know about you, but I’ve traveled many detours. Life is a circuitous trail with many lessons to learn along the way. Sometimes, I find myself traveling in familiar territories. 🙂 I’m so thankful God doesn’t give up on us when we don’t get it the first time. Thanks for reading and sharing.
I am in a season of waiting for health issues to improve. I know God is with me. He comforts me and He loves me. I won’t give up. He will restore my health. 🙂
I’m sorry you’re having health issues, Mimi. I can relate. In my morning prayers, I confessed to getting weary in the waiting. Although we want to do, our bodies won’t allow us to do. It gets old, doesn’t it? But like you said, and I believe to be true, God is with us. And He comforts us like no other. Like you, I won’t give up. Thanks for reading and sharing. Praying for you. Hugs.
Good morning Gail, thank you for this post. Your words and the quote are powerful. May God bless your time today. In Christ, Julie
Good afternoon, Julie. Thank you for that prayer. I pray your summer will be filled with abundant blessings and many happy hours with your family. Thank you for stopping by and sharing. ❤
One day, sometimes in the most unexpected moment, the pieces will fit. Live life together with the ones you love. Your goals may take longer to achieve, but you’ll have someone to celebrate with when you do.
I agree with you, Betty. Some of those pieces fell into place this morning. 🙂 Thank you for all your prayers. ❤
“If he chooses a detour along the way, then he’ll guide us back…” I love that. I agree we must also trust in His timing. Very encouraging article. Thank you, Gail.
