On Hold

I am currently on hold with my bank. There are some online questions I have and its Saturday so its probably going to be a while. I have checked my email, facebook, and myspace. I have caught up on the bloggs I read and my first cup of coffee is gone. All while I am on hold.

I woke up extra early this morning. My friends neighbors apparently think 7:30am is an o.k. time to listen to the radio in a very loud manner. So...what's a girl to do while she lays there and wants to be sleeping? I figured since God woke up me a little early on the 16th I should read a little of the scriptures. I opened to Proverbs 16 and verse one says this: "To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord come the reply of the tongue." and then verse 9 states "In his heart a man plans his course but the Lord determines his steps." For this daydreamer these verses are amazing reminders that my life is not my own. I have entrusted it to my creator and trust that He has my best intentions in mind. He will direct my steps, whether I recognize it as Him or not. He is the one who planned my days before the foundations of the world were created. He does not desire to withhold anything from me. He is for me, not aganist me.

Praise be to the author and protector, my fortress and my stronghold, in Him and Him alone will I entrust the plans of my heart and await answers from His tongue.
