"The rooftop will be closed from 6:30-9:30 tonight."
I wondered why the rooftop was closed-we have a LOVELY view. I mean, seriously lovely. Why close it off? A friend of mine who lives in my building mentioned frustration at being unable to return home, because of a HUGE police blockade. We didn't know why, and it was a liiitle annoying, especially considering there was no explanation.
That's how our relationship with God is, sometimes. He puts blockades and announcements in our lives and we need to trust that those things have a purpose. God has a plan, right?
Come to find out later, President Obama had a dinner meeting tonight, 476 feet from my building. This explains the closed roof, and the blockade around my building.

I don't know where you're at with your walk with God. I don't know what you might be struggling with, or what season God has you in. I encourage you to live joyfully in the season in which you find yourself, and embrace the inconvenience you may experience, because there IS a plan. You won't always see it, and you might not know why something happened until quite some time afterwards. Just remember that there is always a plan.
"For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for well-being and not for trouble, to give you a future and a hope." - Jeremiah 29:11
