…for your Father knows what things you need, before you ask him. -Matthew 6:8, WEB
Most of our worries are based on our fear that things won’t happen as we have planned. But when we come to think about it, shouldn’t it be more important that things happen as God Himself has planned? We may not always know what is best for us, or what can really make us happy. But it is for certain that God knows. And it is His will that shall save us in the end.
Not As I Dreamt It
Not as I dreamt it,
Not as I thought with my mind,
but as you have conceived it, Lord,
far better than I planned.
Not as I desired it,
thinking how glad I might be,
but as you have designed it, Lord
to be far more joyful then for me!
“God knows what is my greatest happiness, but I do not… we know He wills our happiness, but we neither know what our happiness is, nor the way. We are blind; left to ourselves we should take the wrong way; we must leave it to Him.”– John Henry Newman
