When a Plan Comes Together

I guess I’ll be dating myself by this quote, but I used to watch a lot of the T.V. show, “The A Team.”

This was kind of a catchphrase in it. One of the characters, Hannibal, spoke it in almost every episode.

“I love it when a plan comes together,” spoken when some strange concoction of a plan worked out the way he hoped it would.

I find I think that phrase a lot, especially during those times when it is so obvious to me that God is orchestrating things in my life.

I had a hard time sleeping last night.  Even though I stayed up late, once I was in bed (a hospital bed has replaced my recliner for night time, and what a blessing!), I just lay awake.

I changed my position many times.  I changed the bed’s position.  I sighed.  I felt frustrated.  I was tired.  Why couldn’t I sleep? I listened to an audio book - then decided maybe that I was so caught up in the story that it was keeping me awake.  I changed books to one I’ve listened to before.  Nothing seemed to help. 

Eventually I fell asleep.

This morning,  I went to read my daily devotionals, and the first one jumped out at me and brought a smile to my face.

I was recognizing God’s hand - and His plan.

You see, I pretty much know what I need be doing in my walk with Christ.  I “get” the expectations.

So, it’s not the “what” that is hard for me, it’s the “how” part.

I’ve been praying about staying connected to God during the day.  I tend to get distracted and then time goes by without my even thinking of God.  I’m walking in the flesh again - distracted by life.

The devotional’s topic?

David’s sleepless nights.  It spoke of how he meditated on all God had done for Him.  Thought about His nature and His love.

The verse?

Psalm 63: 6 - I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night.

I’m thinking I can make better use of those sleepless nights.

Like I said, I love it when a plan comes together.

Lord, thank you, once again, for providing what I needed when I needed it.  Thank you that is a promise made to each of us that when we ask in Your will, we will receive, when we seek Your will, we will find, when we knock on the door leading to You, that door will open widely.  Amen and amen.
