Woe! It’s Wednesday: The Best Laid Plans

There’s a verse in Proverbs that says:

Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

Proverbs 19:21 (ESV)

pathI’ve been reminded of this verse several times in recent weeks.

A member of our local church collapsed while playing volleyball and died. He was in his early-fifties and athletic and fit.

My mom stumbled and fell recently. She’s okay, but she took a good blow to the head. It could have been much worse. Instead of rearranging my plans for a day, it could have been a week or even a different kind of plan I’d be on.

There’s a saying evangelical circles: God is good.

The listener responds: All the time. And all the time …

And the original speaker finishes with: God is good.

He is good. He is just. He is.

May we all rest in that knowledge.
