Remembering That God Has the Best Planned for You
One of my favorite television shows was the A-Team (Yes, I know I'm dating myself!). I waited for each episode when Hannibal would utter the same words every week: I love it when a plan comes together!
Well, I really do love it! Sometimes things I've planned that have a low possibility of coming to pass actually happen. Maybe not the way I planned, but the end result is the same. Often, and I can't say why, I am surprised that the plans my husband and I have made play out so perfectly. Why do I do that? I trust God to take care of my needs and my wants (My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus-Philippians 4:19; The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.-Psalm 23:1). So my plans are what I want and He says I shall not want! It's so fun and awesome when things work out well.
But then there are times when things I've planned and labored over, don't happen. Why is that? I don't have an answer for that. But I do know that His plans are far better than I could EVER hope, think or imagine! So when something doesn't go the way I planned, I just have to praise the Lord and remind myself something better is on the way!
