Instead of asking God, today,
To bless the plans that I have made,
I think that my request will be
To know the plans He has for me.
Then I’ll know I’ve not wasted time
On dreams I learn were only mine.
Instead, no matter how it went,
I’ll rest assured my day was spent
Productively, in Heaven’s eyes,
Where His “Well done!” will be my prize.
Then when I see tomorrow’s light,
I’ll know just how to start it right:
By checking on the schedule of
My Day-Planner in heaven above.
“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 NIV
