God has a Plan

I teach the Pre-K Sunday School class once a month at our church.  My son Sam is in my class.  This past Sunday I was teaching them about prayer.  The scripture reference was Jeremiah 29:11-13.  I was going to explain to the children that God has a plan for their life.  Before doing so, I asked them what their plans were for when they grow up.  I had several answers such as a policeman, a fire fighter, an airport worker, etc.  But the response that came from my son provided me with one of those moments as a mother that I was somewhat speechless.  He said with unabashed pride, “I am going to be a garbage man when I grow up!”.  I smiled kindly at my co-teacher as the pastor’s son said, “I’m going to be a preacher.”  I’m sure his mom and dad would have been proud.  🙂

In all seriousness, though, whatever my son chooses to do with his life, I pray that it will be the perfect plan that God has for him. 

As a little side note-his favorite movie right now is Toy Story 3 and there is huge scene in the movie that is located at the city dump.  He is fascinated with that movie.


One response to “God has a Plan

  1. I’ll talk to him when I visit this week. We all know, he’s going to be a politician…a godly governor. 😀 Now how can I get a 5 year old pumped about that? hmmm.
