We plan the way we want to live, but only God makes us able to live it. (Proverbs 16:9 MSG)
This is so true! On so many levels…
We make plans, but it is fully up to God whether or not they happen. We try and live the best kind of life possible, but if we lose our focus on Him, there is no way we can achieve that life.
He is the author. We always think we are, that we run the show… We don’t.
As soon as we realize that He is in charge and in control, and offer ourselves to that, we then get our life back.
You have to give your life to keep it. That’s the Word.
