The Unforeseen Known by The Unseen One...

(for mobile devices click web version at the end of the post to see video)

Charles Stanley reminds us often in his messages to
hand the day over to God each morning before our feet touch the floor
in a prayer something like this,
 "Lord, you know what today holds. We don't.
We entrust all our plans, comings and goings to your care'.
What comfort to know when plans go awry 
someone far above you and I is in perfect control!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, no kiddos today...

Plans are always subject to change 
No matter how well laid 
Often, we need to rearrange 
The careful plans we made 

Life is an intermingling of 
Hopes and matters of fact 
Relinquishment, the test of love 
Leaves no heartstring intact 

But if we entrust by God’s grace 
Life’s highway to Love’s Chief 
Then no matter what we may face 
He fills us with His peace

Now 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.” 
Why, 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. 
instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
James 4:13-15
