Best Laid Plans…


Jeremiah 29:11
New Living Translation (NLT)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Strategy of Faith

We must have a plan
Or at least a list
We must write it down
Or something will be missed

Maybe a map
Or a set of goals
If we do not state them
How can they unfold

Or we might use a calendar
And pencil everything in
We’d know what was coming
From beginning to end

But somehow it seems
All our strategy has wrought
Is worrying and headaches
Cause it all comes to naught

So maybe, just maybe
We should put planning aside
And have faith that the Lord
Has a plan to provide

While it is good to prepare and be ready, it is pointless to base our lives on some strategy or plan we have devised. We are like a fog or a mist that is here for a moment and then is gone. Help us to place our faith in You and Your good plan for us. Thank You, Lord!

  1. Amen! We shouldn’t stress over our “plans”… they should simply be general targets that can be easily put aside… after all, God’s ways are always best as you so poetically state. Love this poem, William (or do you go by Bill?). God bless you greatly!
