Man plans, God has a different idea

There are times in our lives where we come up with this grandiose plan, only to have it suddenly blow up in our face. When this blow up happens, we are initially taken by surprise and we are crushed because our plan is no more. I was looking in the Holy Scriptures to help me wrap my head around this and I came upon Ecclisastes 3:11 "God has made everything appropriate to its time, but has put the timeless* into their hearts so they cannot find out, from beginning to end, the work which God has done."

When we have these plans, how often do we take them to prayer and ask God about it? How often are willing to dialogue with God for His input? These are important questions because God is the Master of our lives. He is our Creator.our entire life should be directed towards ourselves gaining admittance to heaven.

The above Scripture passage reminds us that God has a time for everything and while we may not quite understand why His plan seems to be interfering in our lives we must've be consoled to the fact that God knows better than us as to what it is that we need.

As I go on with my day, I am going to dialogue with God and ask Him, "My friend, what is it that you need from me this day? How can I be the best of service to you and your kingdom?" I will also share with Him, as if he didn't already know, my thought and plans and hopes.

May God bless (have mercy) all of those who happen to have their eyes falla upon this little blog posting!
