Plans change but God doesn’t

Proverbs 16:3 Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Yesterday morning we were going out of town for the holiday weekend.  Then my weekly injection made me more ill than usual, and I was wondering how I was going to last in a car for 12 hours AND be pleasant to be around for a weekend;

then, my husband called with the news that not just one, but 2 wheel bearings were bad on our van (that we just brought in for a routine maintenance check) and had to be replaced.  Oh, yes, and the part wouldn’t arrive for at least another day;

then, my husband felt a little “twinge” in his back.  He spent last Saturday shoveling and spreading bark dust with our church group at parks all over our community.  He has a couple of herniated discs in his back that “act up” from time to time, and he was certainly giving them reason to “act up.” Oh, and did I mention that our out-of-town trip was to paint my parents’ house and my husband was doing much of the painting?

then, last night our house/animal sitter called and had to cancel;

so, this morning we made the decision not to go.  There is a reason that we are supposed to be in town this weekend.  I don’t know what it is, but I do know the One Who does, and He is faithful and loves me completely and knows what is best.  I can trust Him.

I think my husband and I are going out to breakfast in the morning, but. . . plans can change . . .

p.s. we got our van back, and God has provided the money for it to be fixed; my husband’s discs, so far, are staying right where they belong; I’m feeling a little better, but still happy that I’m staying in my backyard this weekend; and we don’t need a sitter because I enjoy my kitties and dogs!

I want to know what you think!
