I had PLANS to attend my bible study today at the church but I didn't know it had been cancelled. I was the only one in the parking lot and happened to bring along the book I started last night called, The Power Of Suffering by John MacArthur, Jr. It really is a very good book and the author is very profound in his writings. He wants to bring you up to the challenge of strengthening your faith in the refiner's fire. I'm a slow reader so this is a perfect book for me. I'm thinking the car is the best place to read a book. Very quiet and time for reflection of what I just read.
The afternoon was as wonderful as the morning. I worked on a quilt and our 10 year old Amish neighbor girl came with a plate of oatmeal raisen cookies. I say thank you Lord for this beautiful day even if it didn't go as I PLANNED.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
God gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him.
"The mind of man PLANS his way, but the Lord directs his steps."
Proverbs 16:9 NASB
