appreciate a good plan. I really appreciate being the one to come up with a
plan and carry it out. I don’t appreciate when plans don’t go quite the way
that I think they should. Lindsay McCaul has a line that I love in her song The Door
that says, “I thought for a while you’d come to my senses and see…” There have been many times when I have fought with God because I believed
that my silly little human plan was better than the one that he apparently had
for me. I have no reason to doubt the faithfulness of God in my life or that
his plans are good (the best, really) and will far surpass my own – so I’m
learning to wrestle less.
8.28 is a verse we hear often - And we
know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who
are called according to his purpose.
This is a fantastic verse, a verse I
believe with my whole heart but sometimes when we just throw it out there at
someone who is in the midst of a tough time or when that verse is quoted at us
in the midst of grieving the demise of a plan when we can’t see God’s best
right ahead of us it can come across as flippant.
friend shared with me a great blog that explains this verse well and was an
encouragement to me so I wanted to pass it along.

convinced the ultimate good is most definitely the best for me.
