Surrender

"I've got a great idea for the direction my life should go, God. I just need You to--"
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him...(Psalm 37:7)
"But haven't I waited long enough? I was telling you about this plan of mine..."
The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. (Prov. 16:9)
"But this plan is a really good one..."
"For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." (Jeremiah 29:11)
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
"Forgive me for not trusting You, Father. I know that Your ways are best and that you are all-powerful to bring them about."
Casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
"Thank You for this privilege, Lord."
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You...(Isaiah 26:3)
...and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:5)

Thanks Steph, I appreciate those verses. I need to remember to listen to the Lord and not get caught up in the human end of things.

Hi Kendra,
I know what you mean. It's always a learning process!
The tendency is for me to try to "work things out" by my own wisdom, but God is always faithful to remind me that HIS wisdom is what I need.
