Prov. 16:9

"A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." (Prov. 16:9)

What a comfort! And to think we are so arrogant to even fathom that we are not in His hands sovereign hands... I often am ridiculously stupid enough to try to walk as though that is not the case. Praise Him for drawing me back to Him, time after time!

I pray that when I try to plan and plot out my future that my heart is in line w/ His. I pray that I function beautifully for His purposes and not my own selfish purposes. I pray that my children look at me and see godly example they will want to follow. I pray that I will not fight his direction when I plan my steps, but that I'll have a heart that yields to His direction. I pray that I stay teachable, always eager to be the woman He has called me to be. And He has called me to be something beautiful for His glory. May his glory shine through me!

The beautiful thing about Blogger.com is the option it gives you to not use red text in your posts, thus contributing to a much more professional aesthetic. Of course, I could be talking out of my butt here.
