This morning I planned a post on how to make the stuffies I revealed yesterday. I planned to finish the twins' room and take pictures of that split second of uncluttered tranquility. I planned to meet with my friend to organize our first MOPS get together. I plan, I plan, and I plan.
"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails." Proverbs 19:21My plans are definitely many. I have a habit of overwhelming myself with "projects" (you haven't noticed?). And you know what I forgot to do this morning? I forgot to ask the Lord what His plans are. I forgot that His purpose is the most important. I forgot that my plans will come to nothing without His spirit breathing life into them.
So today, I may or may not accomplish all that I intended to do, but I know it's not too late to sit at the feet of my Jesus and let Him share His visions, His goals, His heart with me. And I know His plans for me involve peace, rest, quiet, strength, imparted love, selfless acts, being an intentional wife and a diligent mother.
I feel a gentle tugging at my restless heart's strings; patient eyes imploring me to stop and be with him. I need what He will give. His purposes alone will prevail. And I want His plans to become my own.
