Carefully considered but loosely held plans

Do your planning and prepare your fields before building your house. Prov. 24:27

Sometimes there is barely time to wrap up one project before we have to start another. When we do have the luxury of a breather between projects it’s good to use that time to take stock. Doing things better next time takes some evaluation and tweaking of the existing plan, along with honest introspection about personal attitudes, expectations, and distractions. But there are times when all the planning in the world cannot predict the unforeseen…and sometimes that unforeseen, unplanned-for factor is the very one God is all over.

Lord, help me to be prepared and flexible for what this week holds.
