His Plans – Your Plans

Commit to the Lord whatever you do,

    and he will establish your plans.

Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)

Recently, we have been facing a setback of sorts in our life. It has been somewhat overwhelming at times but we have sought God’s plan and are looking for his leading. During this time, I also had the opportunity to spend a week at the beach on vacation with my sisters and our families. Going to the beach with my sisters and our families for a week is probably in the top 5 of my favorite things to do. We haven’t been able to make it work in many years. As I sat outside this morning, it occurred to me that I would not be here this year if it weren’t for the setbacks. I wouldn’t have taken the time, I would have been too busy. As life has it, right now I have the time. I contemplated this and realized how awesome God is. As we seek him and his plan, he was making plans of his own. He knew this trip would be healing for my soul. He knew the timing in advance and that it would work out perfectly. Even in the midst of challenges, God is providing. Sometimes the gift is as simple as blue skies, birds singing and lots and lots of laughter. What else do you have in store for us, Lord?
