What to Do When Your Way Isn't the Right Way

Ugh. Don't you hate being wrong? I do. I'm not perfect- no where close to it- so it should come as no surprise that I am often wrong. Sometimes it's not that big of a deal; I can erase what was written and correct my mistake. Sometimes I try to let my husband enjoy his moment of victory when he was in fact, correct. Other times, it's really hard to surrender and admit I'm wrong- especially when it's about the path I had planned to take. Everything in my plan made sense to me, why shouldn't I keep going that way?

 
 

What do you do when your realize that the path you have been on is not actually the right path?

Stop. Ponder. Pray. Reflect. Adjust. Try again.

When we step back from our full momentum and stubbornness, we realize that our way isn't really all that great- the Lord's plan for us is infinitely more.

If you are new, every Wednesday in the summer, different LDS bloggers share their favorite scripture and why via Facebook. In each Faceboook Live video, they will also tell you about the new free printable to go along with their scripture. Be sure to like our Facebook Page so you can find out each week. Sometimes it's a poster to hang in your home, sometimes a coloring page, or even a mini booklet. Be sure to check out some of the other scripture freebies you can use after you grab this one. 

 

This week, John from LDS SMILE is sharing his favorite scripture. It's not one you would normally notice found in Deuteronomy 1:2- it's even in parentheses. It reads, 

(There are eleven days’ journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir unto Kadesh-barnea.)

On the surface there isn't much to look at but as you realize how long it really took the people of Israel to take this 11 day journey, you begin to understand that you are not the only one that has made mistakes. Tune in to John's video for more details.

This week's free printable is an 8x10 poster but it also comes in bookmark size so you can keep it in your planner or journal as you document how you further understand the Lord's way and timing is much better than your own.
