Our plan, God's plan

Take a look at this picture. What do you see?
If we were being honest, we would love God’s plan to look like what we have as the right plan in our mind. We would love a smooth ride all the way to eternity… Or would we?
I was sitting in a friend’s pool the other day and we were discussing how 2015 had some tough times in it. We both looked at each other and said, “but would we want it any other way?” You see, the truth is, if there weren’t hard times in our lives we would get bored; we would not grow and it is likely that we would start to go backwards in our faith. We were created with the storms of life in mind, with the ups and downs in mind. Not that God causes pain but that He uses anything that the world throws at us to help us to become more like Christ.

What would it look like if we completely surrendered to God’s plan and completely laid down our own plan?
What might it take for us to do this?

This is worth thinking about.

Blessings and peace,
