Sometimes I think I am in control. I think that I actually get to decide what happens during my day. As a great friend once told me, I think the world revolves around me. But seriously, I make plans, I try to direct things, I push and go in certain directions. I am the master of my fate. And in lots of ways, that’s true. I can set goals and achieve things. I can do the things that set me down a path.
But not so all the time.
Sometimes, you can’t control it. It’s like the day is running you. A sickness, an injury, the plans of someone else changing yours.
It’s a good thing to remember that no matter what is happening, whether we think it’s good, bad, or all over the place, the Lord is actually guiding and his will is what gets done and his glory is what we ultimately need to strive for.
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9
