Proverbs 16:9 “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” (NIV)*
I thought I knew the path to choose
My plans were all in place
But unexpected circumstance
Revealed another way.
Sometimes good, sometimes not
Interruptions change direction
It’s the Lord’s all-knowing hand
That seals my destination.

Ultimately, He is in control. He knows me better than I know me. He sees the hearts of others and how their lives will impact mine. He knows what the future holds. My part is to trust by placing my hand in his and taking the next step.
Proverbs 16:9 is from the May 29th reading of The One Year Bible.
