How many of you take time for yourselves?
How many of you continue with my plan rather
than God’s plan for me? How many of you miss
meals, workouts, medications, doctor visits, or just “me time”?
I think I know the answer: most, if not all, of us have done
some or all the above some or most of the time!
I recently had a very interesting week.
I was going to fly from San Diego in California to Minnesota
to pick up my brother for a visit with my family. He is
developmentally disabled and cannot fly unaccompanied. For a
variety of reasons, I decided to fly in one day, arriving in the
evening, and fly out the next day in the early morning.
Minnesota weather in January is quite unpredictable due to
cold and snow, but I thought it would be OK. The following
week I was to fly back to Minnesota with him and then return to San
Diego the same day!
The week before his flight he fell and injured
his leg. I developed a nasty head cold. However, up
until the day before the flight, I still was proceeding with
my plan. Finally, due to some complications
with my brother, and my continued illness, we cancelled all
I didn’t want my plans to be
interrupted, but God loves me, and my brother, and
you enough to interrupt what we
think is best for us and do what is best for us, in spite
of us! God loves each of us so very much that He
will do anything for us.
The following is great to remember about God’s
love for you and for me.
