Day 6: In The Silence, I Wait

February 20, 2018

“Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”  (Matthew 6:8)

I am the queen of plans. I live by the planner. I have a 5 year plan. I have a 7 year plan. I have an overarching life plan.

But sometimes, no matter how wonderful my plans seem, they just don’t make the cut for what I actually truly need in my life.

Things come shattering down around me, and I start to wonder how plans that seemed so perfect could possibly go so wrong, so quickly. The peace I felt from the plan is fleeting, and the anxieties of “is this the right thing for me?” creep back in.

It is usually at this point that I throw up my hands in exasperation: LORD, WHAT DO YOU POSSIBLY WANT FROM ME?!

And in the silence, as I wait, something stirs in my heart. All these hopes, dreams, wants and plans may not be what I need.

But my heavenly Father knows what I need before I even get a chance to ask, and He constantly clears the path to get me there.

A Happy Lent Indeed.
