What happens when life doesn't turn out the way you expected? What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, his lack of intervention hurtful, and his promises doubtful?

In this 5-day devotional, Lysa TerKeurst, bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, grapples with difficult questions designed to help us empty ourselves of the misconceptions we have of the way life should be and open ourselves to how God wants our lives to be. Life often turns out different than we hoped. This can seem especially true at the beginning of a new year, during a time of reflection and goal-setting.
