God’s heavenly plan doesn’t always make earthly sense. (Charles Swindoll)

O my God, grant that I may so wait upon Thee, that when quick decision and action are needed I may mount up with wings as an eagle; and when under direction of Thy will and the needs of the people I have to keep going under pressure, I may run and not be weary; and in times of routine and humble duty, I may walk and not faint. For all my fresh springs are in Thee, O God of my strength. (George Appleton)

God never issued instructions that He is not prepared to equip us to follow. (Elisabeth Elliot)
Lord God, I so often try to persuade You that my plans and hopes are in my best interests and then ask You to bless them. But when I really think about it, how can I know what is really best for me? I can only judge by appearances, but You look ahead to the outcomes. Only You see and hold the future, and I want to confess that only You know what is truly best for me. Grant that I would become increasingly willing to let loose of my fond aspirations and embrace what You know is really in my best interests. I know I will have to wrestle with this all my life, because I often struggle with what You bring into my life and tell me to do. It is only when I embrace Your goodness and wisdom that I can stop wrestling with Your good plans and purposes. (Ken Boa)
