I was amazed.... and so might you be.
Just look at the different perception there is when we exchange a simple letter, an 'H' for a 'D.'
Take the 'D' off Disappointments and replace it with an 'H' to get Hisappointments.
Get it? His - appointments.
Ahhh.... NOW you get it.
.... OUR DISappointments are often HIS appointments as He works His Sovereign will out in our lives.
I'll have to be the first to admit that I have rarely VOLUNTEERED to make the 'D' an 'H.'
Most of the time I'm caught off-guard at the changes that are made... SEEMINGLY beyond my control.
But, time and again, they have proven to have been the better plan, after all.
.... sometimes I can clearly see. Other times? Well... I'm STILL trusting that He's in control and HIS plan is better.
One SIMPLE letter makes all the difference.
Suppose Proverbs 16:9 might see things this way? "In his heart a man plans his course, BUT the Lord determines his steps."
How's YOUR perception?
