Daily Digest #44

A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. —Proverbs 16:9

We are used to planning things. The plans we set motivate us to move on and make something of ourselves. And some of us are very much focused on our plans that we do not make room for unexpected changes. When this happens, we start to expect, which when unmet, we end up getting frustrated or upset. However, in moments when we are stirred to a different direction, we find ourselves in company of people or circumstances that teach us something. Isn't it amazing how God works in our lives?

That's why it is important that we keep in touch with the Lord. He is the one we need to consult for the things we plan for so we may know if they are according to His will, and that He may bless our every decision. Thus, we leave the outcome in His hands. He wants us to develop our trust, our faith in Him because He knows everything. No matter which way we go, He is there to show us the way.

For this, let us pray... May He give us a trusting and faithful heart. May we be given wisdom, to understand the lessons He wants us to learn, see what He wants us to see, hear what He wants us to hear, and feel what He wants us to feel. May we learn to look up to Him as we strive our very best in everything that we do. Pray always.
