Somebody once said that God writes straight with crooked lines. That’s a little to cute for my tastes, but it’s nevertheless true. We try, we plan, we decide, we get it all figured out – and what we end up with is epic failure. We lock ourselves in only to find ourselves in chains and quite mystified at our circumstances. We grasp our plans so tightly that we choke them to death, or step out so timidly that what we produce is far too tiny to have any impact. In the end, we are much better off to step out boldly!
