This is one of my favorite clichés. I am fond of it because it has played out in my life over and over again. Proverbs 16:9 in my Living Bible says, “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.”
If I’ve learned one thing since I rededicated my life to Christ, it’s that His plans are always better than mine. I can attest to praying and believing for something that would not have worked out well for me if I’d gotten my way.
I may not always be happy about God’s timing. Patience is not one of my virtues. Oh my gosh! Did I use another cliché?
The bottom line is to trust God and pray; you will always be headed the right way. Now I’m a poet and don’t know it!
