In one of my devotionals this week…
“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps” ~Proverbs 16:9
How true is this verse?! I swear if there was one verse that summed up my deepest thoughts and prayers, this would be it. I am always planning my course in my own mind. Always trying to control outcomes, always wanting things to go the way I think they should. I thought I had my whole life planned out……my planned course in a nutshell. What I did not plan for were all the roadblocks and tests in the way.
I feel so guilty when I question God and His plans and His timing. Does anyone else feel this way? I hate that I do that, but I am a sinner and this is just par for the course. I’ll probably always question and doubt Him. It’s our nature as humans. Thankfully our sins our erased over and over and every single time we screw up, we can simply continue to try harder and do better next time. I am trying to be very cognizant of this beautiful fact during this special Easter week.
