Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
Father God, as Father Shaw and Mother Julie Mudge spend this summer in reflection about their ministry, we pray that You are guiding them every step of the way. Let the plans that are forming in their hearts be only the plans that You put there. May your purpose prevail in their lives. We pray that this be a sweet time for the Mudges, as they reconnect with family and friends. May this be a time of rest and re-creation as they wait for instruction from You. We also pray for Lydia as she continues in her wilderness experience with others from Gordon College. May she be making new friends and gathering helpful insights to help her in her college journey. Keep her safe, Lord, and help Shaw and Julie to deal with any pangs of empty nest syndrome. We thank You Lord, that You are with Lydia and that You are with her parents in every step of their lives. Amen.
