Successful Plans

I have been thinking a lot about my future and where I would like to be and what I would like to be doing.  It all seems to go with the theme of our days are numbered.  So, these are the scriptures that God gave me today.  I told Him my heart, that I would really like to go back to our house in Pennsylvania.  It is a much nicer home and the plan is to live there a couple of years and then move to something smaller.  My husband wants to avoid the huge capital gains tax that we would pay if we sold it now and just moved to something smaller because we have been renting it for almost twenty years now.  Anyway, ultimately, I would like to live in a small home in Pennsylvania, central to my grandchildren and close to a good church.  I also dream of being in a neighborhood again and not living in a small house in the big woods which is where we are now.  But God says to commit my plans to Him and not to take a step without Him.  He will direct my steps if I let Him.  So, here I am, waiting for the Lord to tell me my next step.  I tend to try to make my plans and then rush into them.  This time, I am waiting for the Lord to open doors and tell me what to do and when.  It’s not just making the plans; timing is everything with God.  He is my Father and He knows what is best for me.  How about you?  Have you committed your plans to the Lord?  Are you letting Him direct your steps?  That is the only way to make sure that your plans succeed.  Let God lead!

  1. But…but…it’s so peaceful being out of a neighborhood. I’m in one now and wish I was back “out of town” without all the noise and police sirens.

    I will join you in prayer Vickie for the Lord to open the door.

  2. Two years ago God abruptly upended our life and moved us from our home of 23 years to a new home in a new town. Several times, as we longed for our old home and friends, God gave us Isaiah 43:18:
    “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” It reminded us to focus on the new thing God was doing in our life and prayerfully seek his wisdom.
