God is Never Surprised

This simple yet profound statement was made by Elder Neal A. Maxwell, a former Elder in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He passed away in 2004. He was known for his amazing and poetic way of bringing the wisdom of the ages to the masses.

This statement was taken from a longer one giving credit to his mentors "whose lives reflect divine design that prepared them for their appointed place, for God is never surprised."

What is your appointed place? Do you know you are there for a reason and that God knows what you are doing? My appointed place is in my home first as a wife and then as a mother. Where are you?

I hope you have a wonderful, inspired week.
