Living life through God is so much better. Because his plans are always better than ours. We all aren’t perfect. We aren’t always wise. We don’t always want to wait. But God knows honestly what it is right and best for all of us. We can always change and improve every day through prayer and listening to our hearts, not our minds. God does speak to us if we pay attention and be still in all the things we do.
Each thing we do day in and day out should glorify him. Everything. Housework, parenting, marriage, friendships, Church, prayer, The Word (bible), personal care, and more.
Even if we go with our own plans, we get “recalculated” anyway. God will always find a way to lead us back to Him.
All my life have been invested in both God’s and my own choices. It’s messy, beautiful, and always room for improvement. It’s my prayer to keep God invited into my life. He will help me do what is best for myself, my life, my family, my marriage, and more. He can help us all gain wisdom, patience, grace, and all the glorifying things that makes Him happy.
There are two verses that I love about trusting God in his plans. Please keep them alive in your heart. For the days that we struggle and can be testy.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 35
“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
