This is one of the stations I staged ahead of time.
I’m so thankful the Lord had me do things this way.
I’d prayed a lot about the best way to organize and plan everything.
Experience has taught me things rarely go as planned.
Of course this was true yesterday as well.
Setting up was nothing like I thought it would be.
But God had spoken to my heart ahead of time and I knew He wanted me to be flexible and at peace no matter the circumstances.
I’m glad He did.
Because I really hadn’t expected to be one of the cheering section.
I thought my name was on the “play” roster.
But God knows when it’s best to “bench” someone and that was me.
So, I was really glad I had pictures of things to show the players.
Not everything stayed as I had planned, but that’s fine.
I’m praying for all the details to come together smoothly today.
That our daughter will be blessed as well as her husband.
I’m praying for both families as we let go of our children into a new family of their own.
I’m praying for the Lord to touch the hearts of those attending.
I’m praying for…
Well, you get the idea.
The longer I walk with the Lord the more I realize just how little I know what is best.
My plans and ideas are so far from the knowledge of God.
So, when He changes the game, I need to enjoy the position He’s given me.
Yes, at times I’m disappointed.
But that too can be an opportunity for the Lord, if I’m willing to let go.
I’m looking forward to seeing how God is going to direct today.
I want to enjoy this special day for my little Bell.
She’s beginning a journey of a lifetime.
It’s one I’m so blessed to be called as well:
And the Lord God said, “ It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
Genesis 2:18 NKJV
Truly, God’s ways are best!
