Day 7: My Planner

I am thankful because...
my King takes my plans and turns them into more than I can imagine!
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.  
~Proverbs 16:3

I don't know about you, but I'm a planner! I have a notebook that is divided out by topics and I have a daily task list with goals and subgoals and even an hour by hour schedule... your probably thinking, WOW, she's organized! But... no matter how much time I put into doing that so-called daily task list, I've realized that if I don't commit what "I" have planned for a day to God, about NONE of it gets done! (So, yes, probably pointless to do in the first place... oh well, I had good intentions, right?!)

I stumbled across this verse in Proverbs and I decided that when I sat down to do my daily task list, I would commit it to God! And yah know what?! Every time I do this, my plans become more than what I expected AND my days are stress free... sometimes everything gets done on the list, other times, God changes things up and what I thought I would do turned out to be greater!  His intervention is WAY better than any plan I could come up with. :)
I challenge you to commit your plans to God!

Thank You, God, that You are my King and my Planner!!! 


My Princess...
     Give me your plans

I know you have an idea in your head on how everything should unfold in your life.  Even today you have an agenda.  Because I love you, I need you to give Me back all your plans for today and for all your tomorrows.  If you let Me have your day, I can then intervene with something special.  My intervention will give you more joy in your journey than your good intentions.  I know all that your heart longs for, and I want to do more for you than you could ever do for yourself.  So give Me a chance to change your agenda from ordinary to extraordinary, because that's the kind of life I've destined you to live, My beloved.

Your King and your Planner
