Don’t you just love it when planning one thing and it turns out otherwise? Here is what I am talking about. On Friday morning, I had an idea for what to write. It is based on the Proverbs 16:3:
3Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.
I got the above verse from the Amplified Bible. While reading, I got excited and prepared to write a story about committing my plans to God. After praying and committing the idea to my Father, I proceeded to write.
Guess what? My proposed story morphed from a blog post on committing plans to one about rejoicing and giving thanks. It made for a nice day after Thanksgiving story. What happened? Where did my proposed story go?
Here is what occurred. I committed my planned story to God, the Father and trusted him for help. The Holy Spirit directed my thoughts to line up with the Father’s will. It seems that my Father had a better plan.
In the end, I followed through with God’s plan and published two stories. The first is on rejoicing and giving thanks; it was followed by the current post.
I would love to encourage my fellow bloggers to try it, for yourself. Commit your blog post to the Father and see what happens. Please remember, it is not about you or what you think. It is about what God desires to say through you.
