The Scriptures say that “the mind of a man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9) How true that is. I love how the Lord takes parts of His Word and makes them alive to us. The Word is true all the time for all people, and when we begin to experience it as such, it is thrilling to the heart!
   I had two jobs, working more hours than was wise in the long run, and calling on the Lord for wisdom, not knowing which way I was to go. I planned, but was uncertain. He directed my steps! Through a series of unlikely events, He granted me opportunities I couldn’t have given to myself and made it clear to me which way my steps were to go. I now have only one job, more time for the Lord, my family and myself, and am so filled with the joy of knowing He is King! He is not only able, but also willing to direct our steps. Oh, hallelujah!
