I just got off the phone with my mom who relayed a conversation she had with someone who said, “If you want to make God laugh, just tell him your plans.” I like that.
Reminds me of Proverbs 16:9, “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.”
So often we make our own plans and it’s like we’ve gotten our whole lives all mapped out for us. But then BOOM, something happens. What do you do then?
It’s a good reminder that “We walk by faith, not by sight.” We shouldn’t walk around foolishly without any direction or plans or goals, but we need to be asking, “Whose goals am I living for.”
