Last Friday, everything seemed to be “off”. I got stopped at every light, someone was in my park and I left my spoon for applesauce. On my way to my car (after my supervisor was late returning from lunch, delaying my departure), I saw a rainbow on the asphalt. I was amazed at how two little sticks could be perfectly positioned in a circle rainbow…in the middle of a busy, windy parking lot. It was as if it was placed there for me!
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” -Proverbs 16:9 NIV
The vision of my Friday didn’t include being antsy or slurping up applesauce with a straw. However, my idyllic day also didn’t include seeing a wonder of God in the parking lot either!
Ten days, ten months, ten years from today, I have mental pictures of where I want to be and what I want to be doing. Yet, my mental pictures don’t include all the pre-arranged blessings that God has already interwoven into His plan for my life.
God had unimaginable ideas when He was creating you and as He guides your steps, He reveals them to you!
