READ: Proverbs 16:9 We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.
Have you ever made plans and then they just fall apart? It's frustrating, isn't it?
I am the queen of plan making. I have to-do notes and lists that I seem to live by. It makes me feel good to be able to 'cross things off' as I know I'm accomplishing things. But no matter how many plans I make - sometimes they just 'fall apart'.
There are days when things just don't seem to go right. You know those kind of days - appliances break, the kids get sick, cars have problems, traffic makes you late.... there are really about a million things that can happen that changes the course of 'the plan' for the day.
Instead of getting frustrated - it does me good to take a deep breath and remember that God is the one who determines my days and my plans. He always knows what is best for me too. There have been times when I'm running late - only to find that if I wasn't, I would have been in an accident.
God truly knows what is best for us! As you go about your day today, rest assured that if something doesn't go 'as you planned' - it is going exactly according to God's plan for you. He always knows best. He loves you - you are his precious child.
Dear God - THANK YOU for always knowing what is best for me and guiding my days YOUR WAY. I want to surrender to the plans that you have for me... not just for today... but for everyday of my life. Lead me, guide me, and walk with me all the days of my life.
