Leave Room on Your Plate

Last year I guided one of the high school seniors at our church on a tour of the college campus where I teach.

After my class, we had lunch in the dining hall, which serves buffet style.

Just before she scoops the macaroni and cheese, she says, “I’m just going to get a little bit, so that I can try different stuff.”

She didn’t fill up on macaroni and cheese, because she wanted to ensure that she had room for other possibilities on her plate.

Yes, you may have your own plans for your life. But please leave room for God’s plans on the plate of your life.
