a mind preoccupied with planning…


“Walk with Me in holy trust, responding to My initiatives rather than trying to make things fit your plans. I died to set you free, and that includes freedom from compulsive planning. When your mind spins with a multitude of thoughts, you cannot hear My voice. A mind preoccupied with planning pays homage to the idol of control. Turn from this idolatry back to Me. Listen to Me and live abundantly”. ~~~devotions for today from Jesus Calling.

A compulsive planner.  It is what I am. I am convicted, yet once again. Today I should have read this prior to my “compulsive” texts in trying to figure out how we are going to get everywhere we need to go this weekend. I should have read this yesterday while trying to figure out next week’s itinerary for our kids. I need to read this tomorrow when my compulsive planning will no doubt rear it’s ugly head once again.

I’ve got to learn that He’s got this. He does. It’s going to be ok.


Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.—-Proverbs 19:21
