People always say, “If Plan A fails, then go to Plan B.” Nobody tells you what to do when Plan B fails also. Do you continue creating plans until you run out of alphabets? Of course not! We all know that God decides the ultimate plan. So why do we spend so much time trying to fix stuff, when some of our greatest successes came from things that didn’t make sense? Probably because it is hard to acknowledge, that we control very little of our day-to-day circumstances. To be honest, we control none of them. Every thought we have and every decision we make comes from God, or whoever your higher being may be. It is when you run out of options that you focus on the presence of God in your life. He was there all the time; you just didn’t reach out to Him until things got out of hand. I know it’s easier said than done, but we could save ourselves a lot of stress if we followed God’s plan from the beginning. I will be the first to tell you that I have gone through Plan A, B, C, and D many times. So my words are only words of encouragement, not words of perfection. It is a daily struggle to listen for God’s voice and know it when I hear it. I question all my decisions before I make them, and most times after I have made them. Sometimes I don’t get the answers until the situation has blown up in my face. And other times I don’t get an answer at all. In those cases I just try to find the good in whatever circumstance I find myself. As an organized and in control person, I am learning to not expect outcomes that I can’t control. I see every mishap as a chance to expand my outlook. I remind myself that when Plan A doesn’t work out, then God has something bigger and better in store for me. The hardest part is waiting on the manifestation. I try not to give up, give out, or give in to the temptation to solve the problem my way. I remember when God found me, and that helps me to see my disappointments as God’s appointment. So, when you absolutely trust God there is no Plan B!
