God’s Plan

We sometimes wonder why our plans do not work. Carolyn and granddaughter Beka traveled to Pennsyvania to work at an event but tried to schedule an appointment with a church in New Jersey while they were there. After several tries to make the plan to visit the supporting church did not happen Carolyn gave up trying. She decided to spend some family time in PA instead with her son and daughter-in-law when the event was over.

Going out into the yard in the early evening, Carolyn’s son Steve saw his next-door neighbor and called him over to the fence. Introductions were made and Gary, the neighbor, ask why Beka and Carolyn were in the neighborhood.

The conversation turned to the display board that we use in SOS Events. Gary had seen the board and called it the Bean Toss for Jesus. Carolyn assumed that Gary was saved. However, found out that though Steve had witnessed to him many times, he had never accepted the Lord.

Carolyn then proceeded to ask several questions and finally said, “Gary, will you pray with me and ask Jesus to be your Savior.” He did and they rejoiced together.

Had Carolyn had her way, Gary would not have had the opportunity to be saved. God directs our paths and our plans if we allow Him to.

Proverbs 4:11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
