When The Plans Fail Miserably

proverbs 1921 why plans fail the paln failed

I had a plan. It sounded great in theory and worked out mathematically.

But it failed miserably.

This was the plan…

My plan didn’t consider the path God was leading me down.
On the one hand, I was giving my day to God. On the other, I was clinging to the plans of my mind.

Well, I’m here to tell you that it didn’t work out so good.

There were days I frantically rushed through my Scrap Jar Quilt to make my quota. My reason? To check off that to-do.

Scrap Jar Quilt project – top Complete – Better late than never

Here’s a thought. I don’t believe God gives us a passion for a hobby – only to rush through a project. It takes all the fun out of it.

My next project is in the works

It’s marinating on the design wall.
It’ll be an artsy-fartsy kind of quilt. (Forgive me if you don’t care for that description of an art quilt.)

I peek at it, play with the arrangement, and walk away. It isn’t ready for the next step.

When it is, I know the Lord will guide my steps. He always does.

My plan may have failed miserably.

But I did finish the top of the quilt, even if it is 2 1/2 months after my proposed finish date.

Well, it may be way past my deadline, but it is in God’s perfect timing.

I only have the finishing steps to do.

  • The border
  • The basting
  • The hand-quilting.

And my deadline is – only kidding!

I’m leaving that in the hands of the Lord.

Until next time, enjoy your day and the journey
