Sometimes it is SO hard to understand Gods plan and timing for us. That’s what faith is all about. Lately, I have reminded myself “Gods plan is better than my own” about 20 times a day & it is ok to do that! The Bible tells us this…
- “We can make our own plans, but the LORD gives the right answer.” Proverbs 16:1
- “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9
- “You can make many plans, but the LORDS purpose will prevail.” Provers 19:21
I know I have a very hard time with this subject because I’m such a planner. I have a planner and write a daily to-do list. I also write goals for myself and so on. As a Christian, our LORD is our planner. He knows allllllll your goals, your plans, your high times and also your low times.(The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.” Psalms 34:19) He knows the exact date of when you’re getting married even if you don’t have a boyfriend! He knows it all! All you have to do is trust him AT ALL TIMES! His plan is greater than your plan.
Sometimes its harder to understand his plan than other times, as for me it was very hard to understand why I didn’t graduate college in 4 years like all my other high school friends did. I can tell you it was worth the wait, and trusting his plan for me!!! I am graduating from the Universtiy of Houston with my Bachelors of Science in Education. I am graduating Magna Cum Laude, have been on the dean’s list for 2 & 1/2 years and ended my very last semester of college with all A’s & a 4.0! I am not telling you all this to brag, but I am sharing this with you to tell you how GOOD GOD IS!
Yes, It might have taken me 5 & 1/2 years to finish college but I accomplished a lot while still going to college.
- I followed my dreams and became a professional cheerleader/dancer
- I was a manager at an after-school program
- I worked as a PreK teacher
- I became a Zumba instructor
- I got engaged
- I planned a wedding/ still planning
- I student taught for a year.
It wasn’t easy if anything it was the hardest thing I have ever done, but my lord got me through it and I am officially ready for the real world and to become a teacher.
Before I get all emotional, haha I want to say a quick prayer with you guys.
May the Lord give you strength and guidance through it all. I pray that you trust his plan for you and his timing. I pray for patience, peace, and trust in the lord.
Whatever you are going through remind yourself daily, HIS PLAN IS GREATER THAN MY OWN!! “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3
Sharing some of my graduation pictures with you guys, GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!
