Les Misérables: K is for Knowledge of God's Providence

"The heart of man plans his way,but the Lord establishes his steps."Proverbs 16:9

One Day More!

...Tomorrow is the judgement day.

Tomorrow we'll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store
One more dawn
One more day
One day more!

I love this rousing chorus! It reveals what each character is looking forward to on the morrow:

The Thenardiers can't wait to steal from the dead who fall in battle. Javert plans to put an end to the revolution. Valjean anticipates yet another move to avoid Javert. The students are preparing for victory. Eponine mourns another day without Marius. Cosette worries about losing a budding relationship with Marius. And Marius can't decide who is worth fighting for...Cosette or France.

One thing is sure: They all realize (surprisingly) that although they can make their plans, God has the final say in the matter.

Is the knowledge of God's providence evident in your life?


  1. I haven't seen the film yet, but I saw the stage production and it was stirring. From the Academy Awards I'm sure the movie will be fabulous.

    1. If you have the chance, see it on the big screen...amazing!

  2. Most inspiring post. Excellently written.
