STOP PLANNING!!!

Have you ever wondered why things are not going the way you really wanted them to go?
or Why you haven't achieve your goal, even when it looks so easy to achieve?

Yes, you really have a good plan, but did you know that...

Some things are beyond planning. 
And life doesn't always turn out as planned.

You don't plan for a broken heart.
You don't plan for a failed business venture.
You don't plan for an adulterous husband
or a wife who wants you out of her life. 
You don't plan for an autistic child.
You don't plan for spinsterhood.
You don't plan for a lump in your breast
and you don't plan to be sick.

But....

You plan to be young forever.
You plan to climb the corporate ladder.
You plan to be rich and powerful.
You plan to be acclaimed and successful
You plan to conquer the universe.
You plan to fall in love - and be loved forever.
You plan to have a happy home with children running around in your court.

Still.....

You don't plan to be sad.
You don't plan to be hurt.
You don't plan to be broke.
You don't plan to be betrayed.
You don't plan to be alone in this world.

In conclusion, You plan to be happy.

Thou, you rightly believe that if you work hard enough, you can get what you want, but MOST times, what you want and what you get are two different things.

Now, note this...........................

We mortals plan but forgot that God does as well in heaven.

Sometimes it is difficult to understand Gods plans especially when His plans are not in consonance with ours.

Often, when God sends us crisis, we turned to Him in anger.

It is true, we cannot choose the cross God wishes us to carry, but we can carry that cross with courage knowing that God will never abandon us nor give us more than we can bear.

Sometimes, God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
                              breaks our heart to make us whole.
                              allows pain  so we can get stronger.
                              sends us failure so we can be humble.
                              sends illness so we can take better care of ourselves.

And sometimes, He takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything He gave us.

But because of our selfishness, we failed to acknowledge His doings. 


Now, He is telling you, Son/Daughter! "Be still, and know that I am God". Psalm 46:10.

Acknowledge Him has the Alpha and Omega of your life and understand that your ways are not His ways. 

Allow Him just a little time on your life steering, and let Him do the driving, even just for a short time, just to try Him, and I want to assure you, just like me, you will surely have a testimony which will force you to surrender till the end.

Finally, surrender all to Him today, and you will surely laugh again.

Make Plans but understands that we live by God's grace.
