Plans

     So I guess you could say I’m a planner. Speaking of plans here I am thinking about plans that didn’t happen, ones that are yet to happen, and ones that have already occurred. Sometimes I feel like I get stuck on that first one, and right now is one of those times. I thought by now so many things would have happened in my life, yet few have actually happened. Today has been like a valley that I have been unable to get out of, no matter how hard I try. In these moments I remind myself that you cannot always be on top of the mountain. If you stay on top of a mountain you can’t appreciate the climb and sometimes the climb makes the view at the top of the mountain all the worthwhile. 

    Oh the plans that have yet to happen. This one gets me too. Y’all I am a worrier, I like to know.  In these moments I remind myself of what has happened all the mountains and most of all the valleys I have made it through. I know everyone says this but worrying gets you nowhere because it truly doesn’t. His goodness is overwhelming, then I reminded I need not worry. 

     I am forever grateful of the plans that have already happened whether they were my own or not. They’ve got me where I am today and just wow. If you would have told my high school self that at 23 I would be where I am, I would have laughed. In high school I wasn’t the nicest person, was focused on the wrong things, and really had no sense of direction- in other words there was very little planning involved. Today I am grateful that I was that person because it got me to where I am today. Plans are meant to be changed, thought about, and appreciated.

Waiting

Waiting even hearing the word makes you think negative thoughts… For example waiting at the doctors office or waiting for something to happen. Merriam Webster defines wait to stay in place until an expected event happens, until someone arrives, until it is your turn to do something, etc. Another definition is to not do something until something else happens. Currently I have been struggling with waiting, why hasn’t this happened?? Why hasn’t that happened?? However I stumbled upon this verse earlier and it stuck with me ” but if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience”– with patience. I am the first to admit I struggle with being patient, but if I have learned anything it is that while waiting you are being prepared for something–yes it may not be exactly what you wanted or it may take longer than you wanted it too, but He knows what you need. So wait patiently, and while waiting patiently ask expectantly. Because for everyone who asks receives, the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. So while your waiting be thankful knowing something is coming your way, grow in your faith, and be ready for His perfect timing❤️
