Lord Willing

James 4:13-17

13Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." 14Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." 16As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. 17Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins.

By nature, I am a planner. Before I go to sleep, I am thinking what my first plan of action will be in the morning. Which is usually get up and fix me a cup of coffee. But I am so detailed that I will plan out exactly how many times I will hit the snooze button before succumbing to the day.

I want to be a "Lord willing" type of person. I have heard at times, a person say, "I am going to do this or that, Lord willing". Right now, we have a lot of decisions that need to be made, and I, in my infinate wisdom, want to plan it all out. Open my Microsoft Excell sheet, list it all out, and make sure nothing is overlooked.

Lord, help me to submit my life to Your will. Instead of making plans and leaving You out of them, I want You to be in the center of it. Help me to be a "Lord willing" person.

2009: What did I learn?

I love the reflection that a new year brings, and one of the blogs I follow, she did such an amazing job, it inspired me. I thought, hey why not go back and recap those things I learned this year (well hopefully I learned, you may see some repostings!). Here's what I've done (and it may backfire), I have listed the title of my blogs in order, and the first sentence or statement of that blog. Let me know what you think! Thanks Suzy! Go check out her blog!

I pray you all had wonderful New Year, and may God bless you in 2010!
