Just a Minute: Commiting to the Lord our Plans

I decided to start a new thought series, for those days when just a thought will do. Something that we can chew on and think about a bit. Today, I will begin with the following:

There are times in our lives we are called to surrender. Times we are called to give something or someone up, or to give up the plans we have made in our secret hearts which are not part of the plan God has for us.

How difficult is that? For some, easier than others, but never all that easy. Yet we are commanded: "Commit to the Lord whatever you do. and your plans will succeed" (Prov. 16:3).

Sometimes God tells us to give Him something because He wants to make it better, not to take it away. When we place ALL that is in our lives before Him, willingly and with love, it shows we have no other gods before Him and that He can trust us with what He has for our lives.
