He turned over the plans for everything that God’s Spirit had brought to his mind: the design of the courtyards, the arrangements of rooms, and the closets for storing all the holy things. The Message Bible, 1 Chronicles 28:12
This is a journey I have embarked on with my faith anchored in the hope of sharing my life with someone, a suitable counterpart for me but in all I do I must remember this…
It is God who sets for me great borders
And puts great passions in my heart –
It is He who knows His plans for me
He created my inner parts –
He knows my todays and all my tomorrows
And I must trust He knows what’s best –
So as I take each hopeful step
I must to Him my plans subject.
So in planning and strategizing and doing all the wonderful things we must do, can do or should do …determining the design of the courtyards, the arrangements of rooms, and the closets for storing…all so we can get what we want, let us remember we are in fact first and foremost, holy things – His Temple!
