Plan, Occupy and Go Where He Leads

The best laid plans are just jokes to God!

This week did not go as I had planned.

Proverbs 16:9 tells us, "In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps."

Lately, there have been many posts on FB about the imminent return of Christ.  And I believe it's closer than we can imagine while further away than we would want.  We keep planning our course in this life and God will keep directing our steps towards Him.  Towards the day he returns.

But now it's Thursday, so I can breathe a bit.  I'm just plannin', God's directing.

Luke 19:13 reminds us to stay busy at the Lord's work.  "Engage in business until I come."  One version says "occupy."  That means be about the business the Lord has laid for you.  Marry.  Raise children.  Love one another.  Make disciples.  Train for the future.  Prepare your hearts for today.  Plan your way!

God showed another miracle of his today - it snowed!   I love that!  The earth becomes covered in a warm blanket of grace that hides our confusion and covers us with peace.  Peace - he's got it all under control.

We were all tucked in together.  Watched a movie and did school later in the day.  Chris is getting ready for soccer and we're getting the house ready for my Dad and Mama Mike to visit for the weekend.  And it's peaceful in our house.

Love it.
