“Many are the plans in the mind of man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21
The plans were set, they were ready go,
Granddad and Grandma were taking them to a show.
They had planned it for weeks and the time had come,
Nothing could make their plans be undone.
They were going to the 2 o’clock showing,
They waited anxiously, anticipation growing.
They couldn’t wait for Granddad and Grandma to arrive,
They had to hurry; the theater was a drive.
Then the phone rang, plans went on hold.
Granddad and Grandma weren’t going to make it, they were told.
All the plans went out the window,
What happened? Why couldn’t they go?
Granddad a cough, nothing serious you see,
But he wanted everyone to stay sick free.
The surprise was a disappointment to both Squirmles and Squirrel,
All their plans so easily unfurled
God allows us to think ahead and make plans you see,
But he holds the future and all that will be.
He has your best in the heart of his plans,
Even if you don’t understand.
So plan for the future, and live for today
He’ll be holding your hand no matter what comes your way.
Big plans or little they are all in his control.
So let go, let it happen, and let it roll.
Have you ever had your plans completely messed up?
How does it make you feel to know that God is in control, no matter how well you plan?
