Some days nothing you plan goes the way you intended. The last few days have been that way for me and it was really bugging me. Why was this happening and how could I stop it? I came up with a handful of reasons that led to the interruption of "The Plan" and ways to remedy them.
After much contemplation, adding, subtracting and deliberating, this is what I came up with........"To heck with the plan!" I need to learn to be more flexible. Yes my time is precious and I have so little of it to throw around, but why get stressed when things don't go the way I planned?
The more I think about it, this whole concept of being flexible with our plans is one of those life lessons. We hold on so tight to the plans we make and usually in those times God shakes us out of them. I thinks it's His way of saying "Who's plans were you following?" If I trust Him like I say I do, letting go would be easy right? No I guess letting go is never easy, but I'm working on it, one finger at a time.
I hope this week, when your plans go awry (because, such is life) you are able to enjoy the moments you didn't plan for. After all, the unexpected things in life are often far better than we could have dreamed.
