You know, God has better plans than simply to say, Let events run your life." Just let whatever happens
knock you about, smash you around a bit and just say, "Well it's events. There's nothing I can do about it."

Well, you can't change events. You can't change the things that will hit you
but you can change your relationship to them, how you react to them. 

And you can allow God to come and say, "Well listen, it isn't whatever.
Because the promises of God are goodness forever.
Not just whatever happens this year and next and right through, forever the promises of God last."

It's strange how sometimes I feel God doesn't hear my prayers, then you listen to a sermon where, BAM! HE answers them all in His own way.
