Planning ahead. Knowing the details. Looking at the map. Making lists. Being prepared and forewarned. It’s the way I am wired. While the old saying, “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”, isn’t exactly found in the Bible, we do know that we have absolutely no real control of the things that will happen tomorrow or in the future. It’s just one of the many reasons that I am so grateful to know that the Lord has promised to “direct my paths”, “to keep me from stumbling and falling”, and that, as my guide, He really does know and will do what is best – for me and for those whom I dearly love.
