An Old Man's Musings  

Questions to ponder: I have always had lots of plans….a play plan, a school plan, a career plan, a financial plan, a health plan, a retirement plan, a long term care plan, and even a funeral plan. I trust in each one of those because I chose them, and I know that I always make the right choices… Uh Huh. How about you? What plans do you have?

  I thought I understood everything, and then I woke up. Now, as twilight approaches, I have more questions than answers. Thoughts swirl around in my mind, but wisdom and answers are elusive. Even the simplest of questions, Why, has no apparent or easy answer. I can only just give up accept and that GOD’s plan is too much for me to know or understand; I can only have faith in GOD’s plan and trust GOD. So I should welcome His plan without hesitation or reservation. As I see it, the problem is that while I am living here on earth, what happens each day, both good and bad, to me is pretty significant to me. GOD, however looks at it a little differently, what happens to me during my life here on earth, only a mini-second in relation to my eternal life, is more concerned with my eternal soul and what it needs to go through while on earth so that I will eventually become more like His image in eternity, more like GOD. My wishes and GOD’s choices do not exactly match, as I only want to be happy and never feel any sorrow or pain while I am alive, while our Lord knows best what my soul needs to feel in order for it to grow…. And His choices usually involve what I expressly do not want: failure, sorrow, sickness, pain, and even guilt….So, if GOD and I are never going to exactly agree, what can I do? Absolutely nothing, except, from knowing that our Lord is All knowing, merciful, kind, loving and only wants what is best for my eternal soul, I must truly and sincerely trust in GOD and willingly accept, and cooperate, with His plan and all His blessings, both good and bad, both joy and sorrow, both health and sickness, both successes and failures, that He chooses to give to me. As it says in Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “they are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. You will find me when you seek me, if you look for me in earnest.”... Just an Old Man's Musings...

SURPRISE!! This page is not copyrighted.  If you find some words or thoughts that you can use, freely use as you wish, and give credit if you want. We all know where this came from, and it is not me, but GOD, so use what you need, and then pray and thank our GOD. Do not ever thank me, as I am only a channel for our Lord. Think of me as maybe being a very small and feeble beam of light pointing the way towards the Light of Christ. God Bless You All! Last modified: June 21, 2013(AL).
