This is an excerpt from You Are More, by Carmen Rasmusen Herbert.
“What about all those ‘feelings’ everyone had? Why was my mom so sure I would make it? I felt silly for believing.
“Has that ever happened to you? You trust in the Spirit, you follow a prompting, and things don’t work out the way you expected them to. We can’t always see God’s plan for us. Sometimes, even when we think we’re so sure of something, it doesn’t fall into place like we imagine it will.”
