Carefully planned days
As you all know I am NO planner. I can if necessary and I do have an idea in my head of what, in general, I would like to accomplish each day, but to plan, to schedule, to figure out each detail, I don’t go there.
Recently He has been reminding me that my days, my time, my money–all are not my own. I am His and all my resources , talents, whatever, are at His disposal. And every time I think I have a feel for how He wants me to go about my days He flips things over and turns them around so that I find myself, once again, relying solely on Him.
So very much going on–yard sale, fixing other peoples computers (4 including my husband’s and my kids’), web site stuff–just a little, getting ready for our trip, money stuff (check from Canada didn’t go through as planned causing a landslide of fees which supposedly the bank will get rid of but which has not happened), multiple otgher things, all crazy and unexpected, every project having multiple snags but all in God’s timing.
And now, as one thing falls back into its proper place the next and the next do as well. And as we are at the last few days before our supposed trip things continue to begin to make sense and happen as I felt they should have sooner. God knows exactrly what is going on and is reminding me over and over that I am NOT in control.
I’m glad you’re able to rest in God’s plan, even though it might not look anything like your own.
I’m learning the same lesson here–it’s been a rough few weeks.
I’m going to pm you my phone number, in case you want to meet up while you’re on vacation.
Heather, I just scolled through your last several posts and enjoyed all the photos. I’m always impressed, too, with your attitude of 1) knowing yourself and accepting how God has designed you; 2) letting God lead and being flexible enough to conform to whatever He’s presenting you.
You inspire me!
I know that’s what He is doing but still…I need it in my thick head that I’m not in control and He reminds every day!
I am a planner, and an organizer so it is really hard for me to be flexible…I’m learning
So true, and AMEN!
thanks … i needed these words again tonight 🙂
I always struggle with this so your post was a needed reminder and a fine example. Being a control freak, I always get upset when things go awry, especially when it comes to money. Thanks for the different perspective.
