At the Oakdale Rescue Mission we do a lot of planning for different fundraisers and events. It’s truly awesome to hear all the different ideas from all the different board members. There are so many different plans, some of them don’t work out, but for the most part everyone on our board is talented and gifted in different ways, making the suggestions come true. the really cool thing about our organization, is that we come up with a plan and run it by God. The cool thing about giving our plans to God is that he will organize all of it for us. I don’t know how many times we started out with a plan, gave it to God and things, items, and people started popping up left and right giving us exactly what we needed. I praise God quite often for all the opportunities he presents us with. Will you give that a shot today? Proverbs 16:3 commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.
