David is a wedding planner to the stars and on the show a lucky bride receives his services with one catch...HE chooses everything! Yikes! She must trust him to act in her best interest. He sits down with each bride and listens to her vision for her wedding. And some of them have some way out visions! Everything from Alice in Wonderland to frogs. Then they show him what they've planned thus far. When I tell you some of that stuff is a hot mess I mean it is one hot mess!!! He patiently takes it all in and then goes to work. The catch phrase of the show is, "Every bride has a vision, David has revisions." And boy does he. He gives her what she wants and things she didn't know she wanted.
Isn't this just like The Lord? We pray, telling Him what our vision is for our lives , our careers, our families. He listens, patiently taking it all in. Then he goes to work... The Ultimate Planner. We think we want to pursue one career path until our professor recommends a certain class and everything changes. We are dating one guy when we meet another at a friend's wedding and everything changes. We think we want all girls until that little bundle in a blue blanket is placed in our arms and everything changes. Yes we have a vision for our lives and God has revisions. We pray and trust Him to act in our best interest. I know in my own life He has given me some things I wanted, shielded me from some things I thought I wanted and blessed me with things I never ever knew I wanted.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love Him.
1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT
