When Life Doesn’t Go to Plan

Sheridan Voysey
March 6, 2023

Presenter and author Sheridan Voysey speaks of longing and disappointment, but suggests that may be part of a reorientation of our plans.

""There’s a wonderful proverb: Hope deferred makes the heart sick. And gosh, we now know that when that hope is deferred and deferred and deferred, and another month and another month and another month, and you don’t get what you desperately want, your heart can really become sick. You try that for ten years. But there’s a second part to that proverb that we often forget, and the second part goes: but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. That doesn’t mean the same dream – it can actually be a different one.”"
