Jeremiah‬ ‭10:23‬

“I know, Lord, that our lives are not our own. We are not able to plan our own course.” ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭10:23‬ ‬
I’m a planner! I love to-do lists, calendar apps, meal planning, and anything else that helps to keep this busy life of mine ORGANIZED!! It makes me happy. It calms me down. It’s almost as satisfying as a freshly cleaned house (don’t get me started on the joy that brings me). But how often do I get so caught up in the planning that I completely forget the truth of this Bible verse?
How many times do we live our lives thinking that we are in control, confident in the fact that we have the details figured out and our future is set, only to be shaken awake by the realization that we, in fact, are NOT in control and that our carefully laid out plans, as meticulous and wonderful as they may be, were NOT the perfect plans that God has for us.
Sigh. I get in the way of Jesus way more than I care to admit! I’m so thankful that He gives new mercies every morning and that He gently leads me to Scriptures that remind me that His ways are better than mine and the act of letting go of MY will and following HIS, will one day lead me to joy unimaginable.
My sweet sisters, don’t get so caught up in your own plans that you forget to wait on God’s PERFECT plans!! Our lives are not our own!
