Proverbs 16:1-3 (The Message)
1 Mortals make elaborate plans, but God has the last word.
2 Humans are satisfied with whatever looks good; God probes for what is good.
3 Put God in charge of your work, then what you’ve planned will take place.I started blogging before I started homeschooling. In those days, I wrote about being busy, organization, planning, and faith. I have to admit, in all my years of writing about organization and planning, I often struggle. It's not the planner that I use. It's not my organizing system. I often leave out the most important aspect of planning. So many times I forget to pray about my plans and for help in my organizing. The faith and the organization parts of my life don't always intersect. That's a shame. It's not like the Lord doesn't care. I know the Lord wants me to have peace and order in my home. I Corinthians 14:33 says “For God is not a God of disorder but of peace…(NIV)” I just don't pray about it enough. Each day, I plan our meals, our personal schedules, and our homeschool schedules. I try to keep our planners and our home organized. I try to do what God wants me to do, but I’m afraid I fall short many times. Sometimes, the planning and organizing doesn’t bring peace. It actually brings more disorder. It’s not for lack of trying. It's doing things out of order.
