Verse of the Day ~ Proverbs 16:9

Verse of the Day

The heart of man plans his way,
but the Lord establishes his steps.
Proverbs 16:9

Have you ever made plans . . . plans that are just so exciting you know they’ll be successful? And then they flop? Yeah, me too. I’ve learned so many lessons about standing back and letting God lead me I could fill a mini journal. I’ve learned that the Lord overrules my plans when He wants something to happen in my life that will bring Him glory, keep me safe, and take me to the place He wants me.  So I’m learning, always learning, to listen to His leading.
