“It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.” Erma Bombeck
Pharaoh set out to kill every Hebrew baby boy in Egypt. Moses’ mother decided to save Moses by putting him in a basket of papyrus reeds to float him down the Nile River. Of course her dream was to keep her baby to watch him grow big and strong, however all she could do was trust God as she gave her dream over to Him. As fate would have it, Pharaoh’s daughter found Moses and raised him herself. Moses grew to be the man that delivered the Jews from Egypt. Life can feel like a constant tug of war with God between what we want and what He wants. Sometimes we have to let go of our dreams and trust God. Then just like Moses’ mother realized, He will begin to do more amazing things in and through our lives than we’d ever hoped for.
We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps (Proverbs 16:9, NLT).
