One of the things that distinguishes us apart from the animal world is the ability to make plans and execute them. We do it all the time. But God also has plans --- for you and me. And sometimes ours and His aren't the same. That's why Proverbs 19:21 reminds us “Many plans are in a person's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand and be carried out.” Lord, help my and my friend's plans to be flexible enough to bend and blend with Yours. Always. Amen.
