You can make plans, but...

James and I are realizing how busy we are.  We talk about plans for our future and what we think is best, sometimes without praying about what is best for right now--this very moment: being financially responsible, paying off school loans, having a family, fixing up the house, etc.... We think often, "Is this what we should do now?  How is this going to work?  Should we put our time into this thing, when we know this other thing needs our attention?  What next?"  Those thoughts are probably normal thoughts, of a normal couple or person, trying to figure out things.  But, I'm reminded, yet again, by scripture.  "God, what do YOU want us to do, right now--this very moment?  What is YOUR will, not ours?"  Ultimately, Proverbs 19:21 says it all.  Whatever plans we make or direction we go, the Lord's purpose WILL unfold before us....exactly in His will and His timing.  It's so cool to be reminded of that (to not let it consume our thoughts). 
This is something we must never forget: to pray according to His will, not our own....
and to stop thinking about tomorrow, and just let it come on its own.
