Today has not gone at all as planned. I had planned to stop in at the nursing home to see my mom before work. Didn't happen.
I walked in the door at work and the things I had planned to accomplish today are still undone. After over 6 hours of being here, I am just now able to slow down and take a breather. In the middle of the stress of the day, I reminded a couple of people, as well as my own self, that things are in God's hands.
Tonight, I was planning to do something, but then was told that I didn't need to, and then today was told that I did need to. Of course, I had already made other plans. Expected plans cancelled have now become another dip in today's unexpected.
Last night I was asking God about some areas of uncertainty in my family's life. In the middle of the craziness of the day, I hear Him reminding me that my unexpected, is not at all unexpected to Him.
And I find peace. Close to Him.
But for me it is good to be near God;I have made the Lord God my refuge,that I may tell of all your works. Psalm 73:28
