Take the time to... PLAN AHEAD

~Friday for Friends~

This is the seventh post in the Take the Time series. The rest are Take the Time to ListenEncourageTalk With SomeoneStop Gossip, Forgive, and Calm Down.

  "The plans of the diligent lead to profit
    as surely as haste leads to poverty." Proverbs 21:5 (NIV)

Plans are a neat thing. They can help us keep working on our goals and not waste time. They can help us make time for what we need to do and for the people around us. BUT we should not cling so hard to our plans. And that because God's will is so much better! Our plans and His plans might be the same, but when they're different it's obvious whose plans are greater.

"Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
    but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails." Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)

""For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. "" Jeremiah 29:11(NIV)

How about you? When was a time when you found out for yourself that God's plans -for you and for others- are amazing?
