Undeveloped Plans

Oftentimes, we give up early in the process of building or planning for our future because things don’t work out like we think it should. Plans such as building a business, retirement, purchasing a vehicle, marriage, or having children can cause for great anxiety when we feel we are pressed for time instead of trusting God’s timing. When it comes to the things of God, the intensity for change is higher because as children, we expect our Father to come and give us a quick solution to our personal created chaos.

While we are in utter shock and awe of God’s pace for giving us what we desire, God is strategically creating for you the best life yet. Imagine actually waiting for God’s perfect plan to come to fruition, and while in wait you are occupying your time with the things of God and not the worries of this world.

Be encouraged ladies and understand that God has a plan for your life. When God created you, He also predetermined your life events. By trying to rush life we end up with premature desires and failed relationships that causes us grief and heartache. Listen ladies, I know you are ready to reap the benefits of your labor. I also understand that the clock is ticking and you aren’t getting any younger. Don’t take God’s waiting process as punishment but take it as a message that He knows what’s best for you. Stop wasting precious time pondering over what isn’t happening and began rejoicing over what lies ahead.

Prayer: God, I know that life doesn’t always go according to plan. Help me to stay focused by trusting your plans for my life. In my moments of discouragement, reassure me that my future is in your hands and if I stay the course I will receive all that you have for me.

Scripture: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11(NIV)
