He Has Things All Planned Out

Our lives are planned out
by a God who has His own plans.
He doesn’t always tell us,
but He has us in His hands.
What we will accomplish
or what we will not,
whether it’s for ourselves
or what we desire for God,
is not always the same
as what He desires.
But trusting and obeying
are what He admires.
And what we pass on
or desire for our children
may not be the same
as how God will build them.
Yet they, too, have a plan
that God has personally designed
to love God
with all of their heart, soul, and mind.
Dear God in heaven,
as You plan my day
please make sure it includes You
in every way.
