THY WILL, NOT MINE . . .

Posted on July 15, 2021 by atimetoshare.me

 

We’ve all experienced disappointments. The plans we make don’t always come to fruition.  We may have waited a long time for our goals to be met – only to have something get in the way reaching them or by being interrupted by some road block or detour.

Our path in life doesn’t always run on a set schedule. There are going to be changes in the game plan along the way. We might face disease, failure or financial loss. We may not have the backing or encouragement to make our dreams come true. The timing may not be right. There are a multitude of deterrents to reaching our final destination.

God doesn’t put those obstacles in our way to dissuade or antagonize us. He isn’t sitting on His heavenly throne looking for ways to beat us up. He wants only what is best for us.  This world is filled with disappointments. We can become a victim of them and lose our faith in God’s promises, or we can look at them as stepping stones which lead straight to heaven.

Dear God, I make plans every day – plans for things that need to be accomplished, places to go, people to be with and so on.  My plans often run into brick walls or my path becomes covered with strangling vines and what I thought would happen, doesn’t.  I know You have a perfect plan for my life.  You’ve promised me through Your Word and actions.  I often forget and don’t allow You to do what needs to be done.  I forget to hold You to Your Word.  My faith often needs to be kick started to get going again.  My plans are nothing compared to what You have laid out for me.  Help me to put my plans in Your hands and use me for Your purpose.  Amen

  1. That’s why it is so important to truly Trust in the Lord. He KNOWS the future so His plans and especially His plans for us, never go awry! 😉 ❤ God bless for this Bruce!
