Amazing, is our Lord! Yesterday morning I sat down here for a few minutes and shared my goals for the day. Did you read that? *MY* goals. Little did I know that God had other plans for me, especially after work. I had a couple of assignments that I needed to take care of, and one of them I rushed right through and had done, only to delete it when it was 98% complete. (Insert heavy sigh here) I got what I needed done, and in between got dinner and laundry going (and switched to the dryer). Needless to say I had a bounty of energy to get some of the "little things" done that make the most of a difference to me alone (like sweeping the crunchy leaves off the porch) and then knew when it was time to call it quits and relax. I could feel it. I could feel it in all of my being. When I did change into my nightgown, and sit downwith my book, I realized that very statement above there. My plans are not His ~ but His are worth dropping everything I had worked out in my mind (on paper) to accomplish.my plans are not His, and I was humbly reminded of that today.
Even though I had the best intentions, they still were not in line with His for me. I could feel it as the day ended how relieved and at peace I was feeling simply because I understood. It's not about getting done what I want in my life ~ it is about living my life with a purpose of His will in it. Now don't get me wrong, I was very down for a brief moment because I felt like a failure ~ until I found truth in His will for me, and validation for doing what He has called me to do.
