Plans

Sometime today, I had the most excellent idea for a blog post.  It was so perfect.  I thought about writing it down, then thought “nah…I’ll remember.”  Yeah.  Right.  Alas, my over-40, mom-of-two-kids, too-much-to-think-about brain just can’t quite piece together the amazing blog idea.  I know….tell your plans to God and He laughs.  Okay, maybe that’s not the exact way the Bible puts it, but sometimes it feels like it!

The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples. ~Psalm 33:10 NASB

The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps. ~Proverbs 16:9 NASB

See….told you!  Despite our best laid plans, sometimes, it’s just not the way God wants it.  Although sometimes it’s a delayed reaction on my part, I am thankful that He loves me enough to redirect me when my plans aren’t His plans.  Because, of course, His plans are best!

For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.  ~Jeremiah 29:11

So….has God changed your plans?  Take heart, He knows what He’s doing!

Be blessed and share God’s love with someone!

About meanderingswithgod

I Write. It’s what I do. It’s as vital a part of me as breathing. I write when I’m happy. I write when I’m sad. I write when I don’t understand. Or when I understand a little too clearly. I write when God’s speaking to me. And when I’m speaking to Him. And, more often than not, it comes out in rhythm and rhyme. In my words, you’ll find laughter and tears, pain and triumph, confusion and clarity. In my words, if you bother to search, you’ll find me. So, it is with both excitement and trepidation that I begin. This blog. This writing that’s been so long coming. My words. God’s words. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to tell the difference. Mine are clumsy, His are eloquent. I hope, as you read my verbal meanderings, that you’ll be blessed and find yourself searching for Him.
