What is Your Script?

Jeremiah 29:11-For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future NIV).

Entertainment is rare at the doctor’s office but the other day, a young mom and her four-year-old twins kept us all in smiles.

Likely hoping for a little peace and quiet, Mom picked a children’s book off the shelf, arranged the little ones on either side and began to read. The girls did not like Mom’s book one bit. It was one of those learn your alphabet things. They had no interest in the A-B-C’s. Instead,  they’d each picked out happy, cartoony type stuff.

They begged and whined for mom to discard her plan and read their particular picture book. Mom paid no attention. She calmly proceeded with her reading. Eventually though, both girls set their books aside and began to
listen as Mom’s calm voice read them what they needed to know.

We are like that. God has a plan for us. He has things to teach us and we don’t care to learn them. However, if we are wise, we allow God to steadfastly point the way and we come along side and begin to read what God
is reading.

My Darling Husband and I are reading plans right now that we do not care for at all. Ron is in the last stages of cancer. Thankfully, with family and nursing help and good friends and neighbours I am able to care for
him here at home.

How can his death prosper us? How can these plans prosper us? What future is there in this?

We don’t know the answers to all the questions yet, but this we do know. God loves us. He plans the best for us…if we will but trust him and willing follow his path.

  1. Beautiful metaphor! We cannot change the winds, but we can adjust our sails to navigate through them with our resistance, with grace and consciousness for what matters in the moment. Hugs.

  2. Yes! We are one with you both, still.
    “Hebrews Rest,” sweethearts.

    Hebrews 4:9-10 – So then, there is still awaiting a full and complete Sabbath-rest reserved for the [true] people of God; 10 For he who has once entered [God’s] rest also has ceased from [the weariness and pain] of human labors, just as God rested from those labors peculiarly His own. AMP

  3. This post is a very wise one. Calmly and surely the mom reads to the children what they need to know. God certainly does show us little blessings at all times of our lives. You are a blessing to me as you and Ron show me the way – gracefully and graciously. Blessings,

  4. Brenda, I find favourite scripture are different each process in my life . this from 2 Chronicles 20:15-22 …..15.Lords says too you: “Do not be afaid or dicourage because of this vast army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s’…….20.Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful. (Johoshaphat saying to Judah and Jersulm)…… ……21as they went out at the head of the army saying “Give thanks to the Lord,for his love endures forever”. We do not always pick our circumstances but is god who fights our spirtula and emotional battles for us don’t you think?Love to you and Ron.
