A Change in Plans

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Today, things haven’t gone as I had planned.
But I’m content in knowing that Thy hand
Is guiding every altered step I take,
And changing wrong decisions that I make
So that my will and way may follow Thine.
I thank Thee, Lord, for taking hold of me;
And turning me around, to follow Thee.
For even though I grumbled at the time
Because my day assumed a new design,
I understand Thy plan was best for me.
So take me, Lord, wherever Thou wouldst go.
I’m ready, Lord; for in my heart, I know
That Thou wouldst only do what’s best for me.
And in Thy will, contented I shall be
As I resign my plans, today, to Thee.
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD,
'plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.'"
Jeremiah 29:11
