This is re-posted from back in November

As I've been trying to make thing happen for myself this past week, house-hunting and finding virtually nothing that I can truly live in, driving through what sometimes feels like the middle of nowhere (or somewhere close to nowhere), I realize that Someone much bigger than me knows right where I'm going to live, what home I'm going to have, and that He's going to provide for me the same way He always does. Can't deny that sometimes I'm horribly discouraged, but the truth is that I truly am at peace (deep down), knowing that He's taking care of me.
Anyway, I was just browsing through the archives and came across this and figured I could use reading it again. Figured I'd repost it. (Ok, truth is, I know I should've written here a long time ago and couldn't come up with anything so I'm doing the lazy route. Just kidding)

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!
