As any planner knows, the unexpected shows up frequently at events. As the old as saying goes, "the best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry." (We can thank Robert Burns for that line.) A good planner has flexibility built into the plan for those little bumps in the road.
All of my plan A's usually come with a Plan B. However, there is One who never needs a Plan B.
His plan A is right on track even though I may doubt Him when things seem to go wrong.
For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
But the LORD's plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken. Psalm 33:11 NLT
|Chris & Emily|
The wedding plans will come to an end on May 4 and we will celebrate (later we'll nap). But that event is really only the beginning for Emily and Chris' life together. God has much more in store for them. Good things are ahead that give them a future and a hope. Human plans always come to an end. But the LORD's plans are forever - full of hope and good things for us when we've placed our trust in Him. Plans for good that last forever. I really like that. A future full of God's goodness. It doesn't end on earth, but carries into eternity. Trust the Master Planner, who gets it right the first time.
The LORD will work out his plans for my life--for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. Psalm 138:8 NLT
