As a kid I thought I’d want to be a rock star. I also thought about being a chef or an airline pilot. The only plan I apparently had was to entertain with music and hope that I’d be discovered. There was no effort towards learning the culinary arts or aviation.
Today, I have a business that produces communications events and videos. I also lead worship at a local church and get to preach every now and then. None of this was planned by me. I would never have guessed I’d be married to Ibel and have five adult children. I’m so grateful for the way the LORD has directed my steps.
God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts. His plans are better than our plans, in fact, they’re the best plans possible for us.
God does expect us to be intentional in the way that we live. Specifically, He calls us to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Everything else flows from that. Relax and be a lover.
Proverbs 16:9 We can make our plans,
but the Lord determines our steps.
