In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.
I love to plan.
So does God.
I think that no matter how good I am at it…..God’s plan is probably a better deal than mine. Any day of the week.
God knows everything. He is a much better planner than I am. In His plan, I am an instrument made to bring Him glory. How often have I let my own plans or short sighted agendas keep me from fulfilling my purpose?
How often have I fought God? No LORD, I know what I’m doing here! (sound silly? yup.)
My beautiful daughter doesn’t fight God yet. So far she starts everyday smiling and with joy bubbling up from deep inside her.
okay, okay, it APPEARS to be drool, but I know it for what it really is.
A joy-filled smile and a joy-filled heart.
Give me a child’s heart LORD. Teach me not to plan my course in pride and arrogance, but to greet you every morning with a smile of pure joy.
Knowing that you love me and that we will live each day together.
