You know how you plan on one thing, and something completely different happens? 

Hi, this is Joni Eareckson Tada. You know how you plan on one thing, and something completely different happens? Years ago, I was speaking at a church in Massachusetts. And there, in the large crowd, sat a Chinese scholar. He had come from China that summer to study in Boston. A friend had invited him to the service, and after hearing the Gospel message? This Chinese Scholar embraced Christ as his Savior. Wow, I bet that man would have never imagined that his trip to the states would include a ticket to salvation! God has determined the exact place you should live and work, who you will meet and what you will do, so that—as Acts chapter 17 says—“you would seek God and perhaps reach out for him and find him.” So remember this as you go through your day: There are people all around you who may not even know they are seeking God. Today, help them find Him.
