Many are the plans
in a person’s heart, the Lord’s
purpose that prevails
Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
This the Bible Gateway’s Bible Verse of the day for yesterday.
I was in on the creating of the very first version of the Verse of the Day when it first launched in the spring of 1996.
I was learning HTML on-the-job as I worked on the official first website for Zondervan, Inc. with a guy send out from Harper Collins Publishers to train me in the new art of web design.
I had a week to learn.
I wondered about the guy teaching as when we were asked if the site could display a different Bible Verse every day he said yes.
Later he said to me there has to be a way to do that, right?
That feller later called a friend from college (UVa) who knew what to do and wrote the script and emailed it to us.
Somehow we got the site launched.
I mean no one understood anything online back then.
A group that worked with us at Zondervan wanted to create a site that would have information for Churches to create their own online presence.
They called their business Gospelcom.
So their website ended up having to be Gospelcom.com.
I stayed with that website, learning HTML as needed to, and traded that job in for a job with WZZM13 TV and I designed and launched that website in 2000.
IN 2009, due to the real estate crash, my position was eliminated but at the same time I was told that my job was gone, I was offered a new job with the Gannett Broadcast web development team.
Later Gannett split off their TV stations into a new company called TEGNA.
Today we are in the midst of the covid crisis and things are again in flux.
And I plan.
And I plan to worry.
But recently it was really brought home to me how God’s purpose that prevails.
I can worry.
I can plan.
And I can plan on worrying.
But I can count on God.
