Gods Plan Is Best For Us
Planning our own lives is where we all go wrong both before and after we are saved. I need to be reminded of that simple truth often because my flesh always wants to be in charge even after I have learned multitudes of times that God knows best. I need to be reminded of that truth many times daily. Otherwise, I will continue to learn it the hard way. I fully expect that no matter how long I live as a child of God I will need reminders to seek His way for my life. I should be afraid to live outside of His plan even for a moment. You may have to forgive me from time to time for sharing truth with you that I so desperately need myself.
