Planning Properly
By: Rick Boxx

July is the beginning of Integrity Resource Center’s fiscal year, so while many are just part way through their year, I’m finishing up plans for the new year and beginning to implement them.

A challenging aspect of running an organization God’s way is to truly involve Him in the planning process. It’s easy for the plans to be driven by monetary goals and our own agenda, but if we truly commit all to God we should involve Him in our plans.

Proverbs 19:21 teaches, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails”.

If you desire to involve God in your plans, but are uncertain where to begin, start with prayer and listening. Specifically, ask God His purpose then design your plans accordingly.
