If we look only to our own understanding to figure things out,
we really should know that’s a precarious route.
God has a plan–He tells us so…
There’s nothing regarding our lives, of which He doesn’t know.
God’s THE most able to “do” for you;
when we fully trust Him, the Lord always comes through!
P. A. Oltrogge
