In light of my recent situation and in my complaining to God, I have been humbled once again.
Last night as I watched Evan Almighty on TV, there is a scene where Evan is conversing with God about the ark that God wants him to build. Evan relays to God that he doesn’t have time to build an ark because it doesn’t fit into his plans. He has to focus on his career, his family, and his future. God’s response to this is a deep, hearty belly laugh, as he mimics “your plans!”
Even as I write I am smiling , because through this whole move and life change, things are not going according to what I have planned. I am frustrated, angry, bitter, and a few other adjectives about how things seem to happen to go the exact opposite than what I thought. And I am smiling because, through all this, God is having a deep,hearty belly laugh, mimicking me with “your plans!”
I am not here for me. I can do nothing on my own. It’s amazing how quickly I forget that.
Thank you Father, for working Your plans out in front of me and allowing me to be a part of them!
