Proverbs 16:9

I've been re-reading "Her Perfect Man" by Jillian Hart. Yes I re-read books I own, pretty frequently actually. And a few things stuck out to me.

At one point, the main male character says "I don't believe in luck. I believe in God." I think this is a great concept and something that I'm going to try to incorporate into my life.

And to go with yesterday's verse: Proverbs 16:9

In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.

More about trusting in God and his plans. Maybe God's trying to tell me something?

God's Plans -- Jeremiah 29:11

"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

This verse has sort of followed me for a little while. It was in a book I read -- I confess that I have a love of Love Inspired novels -- and in literature from an adoption agency when I was researching the possibility of adoption (which I'd still like to do someday) and in my daily devotional email that I receive from Proverbs 31 Ministries.

This verse comforts me. God has plans for me. I wish I knew what those plans were and sometimes not knowing drives me crazy, but He has plans.

One of the hardest things about being a Christian and one of the things I struggle with on a daily basis is giving everything to God and trusting that He has plans for me.
