10.11.2020 – Many are the plans

Many are the plans
in a person’s heart, the Lord’s
purpose that prevails

Based on:

Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 19:21

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.

I worry.

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.
