About God’s Plans


For those of us who believe that God has a plan for our lives, we need only look in the Bible for confirmation:

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. Genesis 1:26

The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me…Psalm 138:8

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord…Jeremiah 29:11

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. – Proverbs 19:21

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. – Proverbs 16:9

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. – Psalm 32:8

But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.” – 2 Corinthians 2:9

The Lord of hosts has sworn: “As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand. – Isaiah 14:24

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalm 32:8

And finally: How do you make God laugh? Tell him your plans for the future.  Happy Sunday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be Transformed


Here is a scripture that profoundly changed my life once I truly realized its meaning. When we begin to change our way of thinking and open up to the fact that there is more to this world than the day to day physical activities, grudges, hurts, etc., then a whole new life begins to take shape. Simply put, change your way of thinking. Go ahead…be transformed. Happy Monday.

A Garden Not Forgotten


It’s time to put a poem on the page. This was written for a gentleman in long term care in 2005. His name was Mr. Flowers and learning that I wrote poetry, he asked if I would write a poem for him. Hence A Garden Not Forgotten. This was first posted in 2014. Happy Saturday.

A garden full of flowers

tended in the mind with care

or tended not at all

if wildflower seed is planted there

will reap its keeper plenitude

in fragrant showy splendor

and bring the memory of spring

come blustery December.

Blooms spring forth upon the mind,

deep wine rose and purple phlox,

daffodils of yellow,

multicolored hollyhocks

replace the snow and blizzards

in the darkened winter hours

and keep alive in mind’s great eye

that garden full of flowers.

Mind’s garden keeps on growing;

wild winds and winter snow

won’t whip the fragrant flowers

that mind has come to grow.

The seeds are firmly planted

in the fertile soil of thought

where that garden full of flowers

also blooms forget-me-nots.
