Plans & Unanswered Prayers ~ Chicago Wedding Photographer

It’s funny how things work out.

Sometimes things work out in such a way that you can’t help but laugh, and appreciate the fact that although you may plan and plan and plan, God knows better than we do.

In fact, I was reminded yesterday when talking with a friend about all the different prayers I’ve said in my life that I’m pretty relieved ended up being unanswered. (You know the ones… “Please let this relationship work out. Please let him love me as much as I love him. Please let me get into this school. Please let me get this job… and on… and on… and on.) Because when those prayers didn’t get answered things turned out much better than I had planned, and a million times better than I could have ever imagined.


So in this next year, it is my goal to stop trying to make so many plans…

To let things go…

To understand not everything is in my control…

To trust that things will work out…

To stop worrying about things I cannot do anything about…



Instead, I’m going to do my best to live each day to the fullest, be the best person I can be, and remember that God knows better than I do.
