For I Know the Plans...

"For I know the plans," said the Lord.

"Why not I?" asked the child.

"Because you could not handle seeing them," He replied.


For I know the plans," said the Lord.

"Why not I?" asked the child.

"Because you will want to skip over the hard parts," He replied.


For I know the plans," said the Lord.

"Why not I?" asked the child.

"Because you will miss the opportunities for growth," He replied.


For I know the plans," said the Lord.

"Why not I?" asked the child.

"Because your faith would not be necessary," He replied.


For I know the plans," said the Lord.

"Why not I?" asked the child.

"Because you might think you would know better," He replied.


For I know the plans," said the Lord.

"Why not I?" asked the child.

"Because I need for you to trust and rely fully on me," He replied.


For I know the plans," said the Lord.

"Why not I?" asked the child.


"Because I want to prosper you, and not to harm you. I want to give you hope. I want to give you a future. And, because I love you. Because your eyes could not handle, nor could your heart, to see all the plans I have for you, My child. But, if you could just trust, and of the control, simply let go; you could never imagine the places we could go."

Elizabeth, this is -- beyond -- beautiful... The theme of my life has been intimacy with Jesus... and I've got the same heart Jesus' closest one, the apostle John has... in John 13, John is literally nestled up against Jesus... I encounter Jesus in the scripture through intimate heart eyes: those who REALLY knew Him and rested in His love were people like the woman in Luke 7... wiping Jesus' feet with her hair... SO SO much more. My wife and I have two sons, now 33 and 31: and we found what you've discovered... love happens through close nurture: with Jesus , and then flowing to each other in marriage... and then to our children. They are men…
