My Plans … or His?

What are your plans for this week? If you are a member of the LWML Board of Directors, you are planning to meet with your sisters-in-Christ in St. Louis to conduct the business of the LWML and enjoy fellowship!

No matter what your plans are, they may, or may not, mesh with God’s. He says in Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you … to give you a future and a hope. His plans may be vastly different than ours and, being God, His are always best!

If our plans get thwarted, we can react by kicking and screaming, or we can sit back and thank God for His mercy and go on from there. After all, His ultimate plan for us is to be eternally saved through the redeeming work of Jesus; therefore, we also know that He looks out for our best interests here on earth, too.

Please pray for your LWML District President, and all members of the Board of Directors, for safe travels this week and to make prayerful decisions for the work of the LWML. We know that the time is now to move forward in spreading God’s Word, according to His most excellent plan.
