I am linking up with my friend Jessica over at Joy In the Journey for her Fuel Your Faith linky!
I am doing a quick post, one because it's been a long day, and two it is finally beautiful outside! As an adult I have quickly learned that our plans are not always the best plans for us. We often think we know what is best for us, but the only one who does know what is best is the Lord. I am a planner and it freaks me out when I don't know what my next move is, or what our families next move it. (Which is odd, because as a teacher nothing goes according to the lesson plan and as a military family we never have say in what happens.)
Over the past year I have been listening to God more and less of myself, and discovered that when we are faithful and listen he will show us his plan. The most amazing part of having faith and following God's plan is watching how he opens and closes opportunities. Yes, sometimes these feel like difficult struggles, but in the end they are His plan and ones that will not harm us but make us prosper.
I encourage you to step back from your plan and listen to what the Lord has planned for you.
