Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit";
whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that." (James 4:13-14)
It is so easy, it seems, to make plans without God,
To do things half-way and completely slipshod.
We would do much better if we ask Him for His will,
Then our way would be smoother, and life a thrill. (RP)
Throughout my recovery and the therapies for swallowing, speaking, and shoulder pain, I realize more and more that I lack time to do other things I used to do. I have learned to adjust to this new schedule, but I long to be more flexible, especially to do the Lord's work. I am trying to learn patience in this new pathway the Lord has chosen for me now. I am pleased that the reading of God's word and prayer is more meaningful now than it has ever been. Maybe this is one of the lessons the Lord wanted me to learn. Thanks so much for praying.
