Motivation Monday: God's Plan

"People can make all kinds of plans, but only the Lord's plan will happen." 

Proverbs 19:21

How many times have we planned our day to the exact minute, and we find ourselves mad when things don't go according to our plan? The beauty of this proverb, is that you can plan all you want, but the Lord already has a plan in place for your life. His plan may include some trials and tribulations, but He wouldn't have put them there, if He wasn't going to help you through them. 

When I was three years old, I had to have open heart surgery. This surgery was not in my parent's plan for me, but it was the Lord's plan. What if God chose me to have this surgery, so my family could lead another family, or a doctor to Him? When you stop to think about it that way, it's pretty special isn't it? 

I take comfort in knowing that the Lord already has my life planned out for me. I know that my plan will include highs and lows. Things may not happen when I want them to, but when the Lord decides they will take place.

I challenge you today, to trust in the Lord's plan. Trust in His timing, and in His way. You'll find out that His plan was perfect all along. 

I hope this blesses you today.
