Where does it all begin? We need to learn ways to spell, read and write. We might find Kindergarten a little hard and yet as years go on, we realize just how important it is to learn and grow in life. Down the road, we make plans of what job we want to do in life.
IT IS THE PLAN ~
We something might get in the way of our plans as we grow up.
I remember being so excited in my last year of High School. Oh the plans I had for my life and how suddenly in two weeks, my dad had his first heart attack and less than one month he went to Heaven. My mom cried out to go to Heaven to and it was hard to handle as a 18 year old kid. Just starting a new way of life and college. It was crazy hard and I found myself in the Emergency room with chest pains and so weak. I couldn't handle the things I heard, the things I saw and my blank piece of paper before me was full of tears, pains and not understanding what had happen.
I am not sure where you are in life, but things suddenly happen and our lives change. Sometimes that change is too much to understand for a human mind. I didn't know the peace of God then or how to turn things to him. I just became mad at him and if he loved me so much, then why did my dad die and my mom want to die so badly? That was the question that ran through my brain, until one day I heard a teacher speak on the loss of a parent. Her anger was toward God and it opened my ears to listen closely to her words. She began to speak of this scripture in the Bible, A time for all things. A time to be born and a time to die. We are each given that and we must trust that God has a bigger plan.
Ecclesiastes 3 New Living Translation
A Time for Everything
3 For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
I still didn't understand the complete plan of God, but it made me understand a little more. As years have gone by, I see that change happens to each of us in different ways. I see how important one decision is in life and how our reactions are important. Finding the good in each situation of life is just what I try to do each day of life. I might not get the complete plan of God, but I've so learn to trust in his ways.
IT IS THE PLAN ~
Often times in life we are found with a blank piece of paper before us for the day. No plans are really met it, we call it a day off of a normal way of life and we are open to a plan. The bigger plan is found in Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, A promise and A future. I speak of this verse often because it brings life to us. It brings hope to us and knowledge that God has a plan. I find it best not to question as much any more in life and rather enjoy this life I have been given.
It is important to make plans for your future. It is important not to get in debt and put things on a credit card. Life is all about the freedom that God has given us and debt only brings bondage to a life. Living pay check to pay check is no fun. I have also lived where there wasn't a pay check and found myself become bitter at God. It wasn't God's fault in many ways and yet he seems to get the blame. We have choices too my friends and what we do with a dollar matters. Invest, plan and look ahead for your retirement years and the benefits that are set before you. Stop complain at 40 years old and start making a better future for you. It is up to you to handle somethings better and not bitter.
I felt to share this today and I pray for those who read this. I realize that somethings are out of our control, but there are many things that are in our control. Put God first and allow freedom to enter your mind, soul and being. Allow the peace of God to rest in your heart and not a troubled heart. Health is important and I find that the joy of the lord is my strength. He helps me to see things different and allows my mind to open to a new plan. I see that blank page before me and I know that his plans unfold as I surrender my thoughts to him. You might not be able to help where you are right now, but you certainly can turn some thoughts around and make a plan.
PLAN B ~
Go for it, God has given you FREE WILL
Romans 8:38-39 New Living Translation
Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
