JLo rode the 6, I ride the A. Lol. Today, as we pulled out of 59th street, I began reviewing my station in life. Looking back at all the plans I had, once upon a time. I was thinking about all the ways I was going to accomplish my goals and all the steps I intended to take toward that end.
But on this day, some 26 years later I realize that I did not accomplish the majority of those things. Had I failed? Did my choices derail the process of achievement in my life? Or did the plan for me change? Did Divine Intervention take place?
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. Pro 19:21
Do I have regrets about seemingly dashed hopes and dreams? Do I have bouts of ‘what ifs’? Do I walk around with an albatross of dissatisfaction draped around me?
No, not at all!!! On the contrary. Those were MY plans. But, I believe that my life is in GOD’s hands. My prayer many years ago was that my life would glorify God. I am convinced that He orders the circumstances in my life toward His divine plan for me. I believe that now more than I ever have. I believe that my best plan cannot compare with His plan for me and mine.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
About 10 years ago I was reacquainted with an amazing musician at my church. We became friends, then good friends, then best friends, then we got engaged, and now we are married!!!!
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. … Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed. … Proverbs 16:3
