Trust the Planner!
Ms. Shwetha Muthu
The hot air blew continuously over my face. I
looked around at the bushes, all seemed so nearly dried up but were actually
quiet healthy a symbol of the dry existence in a desert. The bushes were
thorny, the sun was hot, the air was dry and I was tried, dying for a drop of
water. Haunted by the memories of the past, I felt myself weak as the air
continuously sucked me off my energy. I resented my walk to this haunt of
I remembered the time in the past, this place was quiet lively with houses near
around. We were young, school going children and everyday we played in
this part of our "desert". We had lots of good moments. But as life went on,
things began to clamor for our attention and one by one we diverged to different
parts of the world from one of the most remotest parts of the land known to man.
My mind suddenly began to falter over things of the past and the uncertain
future, which was obviously not under my control. I know that God knows
well how to take care of his children but sometimes your faith wavers and you
begin to wonder of God is still in control of the situation at hand.
"Strengthen me Lord", I prayed as I rose to leave. For one last time, I looked
at the setting sun. The Painter had done a good job as always filled His
canvas with the mild hues of His nebulous palette. If the world trusted the
Painter everyday to do His job well, I certainly could trust the Planner to plan
my future well.....
Trust in the LORD with
all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways
acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Prov 3:5-6(NAS)
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. Ps 118:8(KJV)
