I Thought…

Is your life going exactly as planned? Mine isn’t! I was sure I would work in the church office until I died. But everything fell apart 10 years ago.

My health deteriorated. I finally stepped down from my job. They took the most effective medication off of the market. That left me housebound. Those I thought were closest to me didn’t even bother to call.

Job’s life didn’t turn out the way he expected either.

Job 29:18, “I thought, ‘I’ll die peacefully in my own bed, grateful for a long and full life.’ ” The Message

” ‘Go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons,’ 2 Kings 4:4….God will close us off to something divine, completely new and unexpected, and that cannot be understood by examining our previous circumstances. We will be in a place where we do not know what is happening, where God is cutting the cloth of our lives by a new pattern, and thus where He causes us to look to Him.” from Soul Food, “Streams in the Desert,” April 5

When things don’t go as planned, we can trust God. He always has a plan.
