I laughed way too hard

              Who hasn't felt like this with plans that were made?  Getting all gussied up is part of the fun of making special plans and then when it's cancelled, we need a comforter, like ice cream.
             Proverbs 19;21 ''Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.''
Our plans may be redirected for our own good and without us knowing why.  We must trust in a bigger plan than what we can see or understand fully.
            Yes, we can feel let down or frustrated with disappointment when things don't go as we think they ought to.  We must remember that when God closes one door, then He opens another.  My personal plan of being a pharmacist was rerouted due to geographical problems, but in the end my journey led me to the perfect job in the lab.  We must not give up but persevere through the changes life leads us through.


  1. To combine my thoughts on this and the last post, the saying, "God is the Blessed Controller of all things," fits perfectly. It is He who is in control both of our destiny and our plans. Praise the Lord! It is His doing and not my feeble attempts.

  2. This really hits home, Angie. I can look back on my life and see God's perfect plan, though at the time I may have felt disappointed that things didn't work out "my way". Even our recent trike trip brings God's great sovereignty to mind. Thank you for these wise true. LU!

  3. Well this reminded me of something today. I went to the heart Dr. from a referral by my reg. Dr. over my feet swelling. However, the past 2 days they did not swell and as I was telling the Dr., I didn't even take the fluid pill yesterday because they weren't swelled. I said, you know, after thinking on this, I remembered I had forgotten my inhaler for the past 2 days--could that be why I didn't have the swollen feet? She said yes, it could. Apparently God helped me by having me forget to take that medicine for 2 days straight and now I am going to try to do without it altogether.

    This also reminds me of that song "Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers"--Yes, God knows best ALL the time. Mom
