God of the Plans

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

God of the Plans

To understand the plans of God and walk the way He said
Had always been a hope for me
Since I was just a kid

But life's great complications
Like children, bills and wife
And all my dumb decisions
Left me in a mess of strife

I couldn't seem to get a grip
Of God's great plan for me
And live a life like saints of old
Who always seemed to be
Accomplishing a lot for Him
Who died on Calvary

My struggles swept me far from shore
Till I felt lost at sea
And then I heard my Savior say
Just trust and follow Me!

God’s Simple Plan

 
 
 
 God's Simple Plan

 Not silver or even a big heap of gold
 Not fancy homes
 Or just stuff that grows old
  
 Not applause and awards
 Or a wall full of trophies
 Saying, “You a great guy!”
 Turn waves to calm seas
  
 But the cry in the night by a babe in a manger
 Was God’s simple plan to deliver from danger
 And the cross and the nails
 And the spear and a crown
 And the stone rolled away 
 From the tomb 
 Before dawn

God is working Zone

“Road construction next 10 miles” is a sign few of us like to see. Construction slows down traffic and forces us to concentrate on changes to our normal pattern in order to navigate our way safely. God also has construction zones in our lives. He is at work all the time and has a wonderful way of throwing us off our schedule and our plans in order to get us on His. Are we grumbling when our street is filled with pot holes and then complaining when they close the road to fix them? It can be much the same on our spiritual roads. Sometimes God closes things down and redirects our route because He has a better destination in store than the one on the way we were headed. So why not follow God’s detour and find out what amazing things lie ahead on the other side of His heavenly road construction?
