Learning to live with "Plan B"
originally written 26 Aug 09

As I strive to remember to give each day over to the Lord…to make myself available and eager to follow His leading…a thought strikes.

I am still responsible to make plans for each day…because there are times when God is silent and I should make good use of my time.  If I don’t have a plan, I flounder around aimlessly.

I think the challenge, for me, is to consistently give each moment over to Him…so that when the distractions from my plan happen (I heard someone call them “God distractions” this week…I like that description.  *grins*)…I should not allow frustration to blind my eyes to the opportunity in front of me.  I want to be amiable and flexible…not rigid and grumpy.  If we’re gonna  serve…we should not be grumbling about it.

If I’m to believe that God has a purpose for me (which I do) and that that purpose is good (I believe that too), then I need to remember that My plan is the “plan B.”
