Plans, Shmans!!!

Its funny because we make plans and then they don't always happen. Our intentions are good, motives are pure, hearts in the right place...and still nothing. Then after all is said and done...we realize "oh, I guess THIS was the plan." It was the plan all along, we just couldnt see it at the time. Like the mom that got stuck in traffic on her way to the airport, where she would have boarding one of the planes that hit the twin towers on 9/11. But the traffic kept her on the ground. I should say God kept her on the ground. It was His plan all along. But to the human eye wouldn't it look like a nuisance, a missed flight, a hassle, a frustrating traffic jam, a bad morning, maybe a bad day...where nothing is going YOUR way. Well thank God it isn't going OUR way and it is always going God's way. If everything were going OUR way, we would be running the show, running the world...we would be in control. I am thankful that God is running the show. He is in control, and things always go according to plan, according to His plan. What a relief! Takes a big heavy burden off of our shoulders, that doesn't belong there in the first place. So when you start feeling like nothing is going your way, the whole world is working against you, your plans are being ruined...say the Serenity Prayer. And remember that our plans sometimes are not in alignment with Gods plans, so we just yield to them no matter how bad or far off they look...and trust in Him. We might not get what we want, but we always will get what we need.


Serenity Prayer:
God grant me the serenity to ACCEPT the things I cannot change
Courage to CHAGNE the things I can
and the WISDOM to know the difference.


Acceptance is the answer to all our problems today. Accept His will. Accept that He wants the best for you : ) It takes more faith to believe that when everything is not going "your way" or according to the plan...but then ask yourself...whose plan am I following...my own? or God's?

For you have placed eternity in the hearts of men.
And now I know that whatever God does it is final. Whatever He does, He does forever. Ecclesiastes 3:11,14

What God does, He does forever. What He promises will happen. He cannot change, He remains steadfast and true. This world is ever-changing and the people in it. We come and go like dust in the wind. "This world is crazy, can't wait till I make it home. Then I can be w/ Him who I adore. When I'm in the battle He's my shield & sword...the One that showed me Love like I've never known before. Gotta give props to my Lord. My Lord is my everything. He's all I ever need. My Lord is the best."
