Posted in Thoughts, Thoughts from Life


You know how it goes.

You get it all figured out. You create a plan. You dive into that plan, and all goes well for a while. Then something interrupts.

It’s called life.

Life used to frustrate me. I wanted to walk according to the plan. Predictability was my friend. And, if I’m honest, I will admit that I would still prefer things to always fit perfectly into the schedule and progress according to plan.

But the reality is that life is not simple and straightforward. No day runs exactly the way we want it to. Sometimes the deviations are rough. Other times they actually improve the day. But the reality is that they will always exist.

So, what will we do with life?

My gut reaction is to change life. To make it fit into the plan. Or to at least stick to the plan no matter what life brings.

If I can’t do that, I want to give up. To throw up my hands and decide that it is just not worth the effort.

Instead, I choose to live life.

You see, my Savior is in charge of life. His plan is perfect. He never loses control nor does He ever see a day that does not move exactly according to His wishes.

And I get to live in that perfection!

I am pretty sure today will not go as planned. But that is okay. I will make it my intention to honor God with all I do, seeking His kingdom. When I do, life will be good, even when it deviates from my plan.


I am a homeschooling preacher's wife and managing editor for the Well Planned Gal. But, I also love to write just for the fun of it. I also process best through writing, and my thoughts tend to flow from things I learn through the Bible, interacting with my family, and moving through life in general. Thanks for joining me in my not quite ordinary journey.

What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
