I had many goals this week and plans to reach them ~ until they were demolished.

We’ve had a fractured week, with conked out computer, busted car, blown up to-do list, and battered bodies. And we’re rejoicing. Why?

Your future looks uncertain and feels flimsy—even precarious. That is how it should be.”

Hallelujah! We’re right on target.  He continues:


Secret things belong to the Lord, and future things are secret things. When you try to figure out the future, you are grasping at things that are Mine.
