Learning the lesson

13 Mar

For those who follow Christ, there is a HUGE lesson to be learned in life … Don’t get me wrong:  There are MANY lessons to be learned over a lifetime of serving Him.  But there is one BIG ONE that will make life much more enjoyable … if you are willing and able to learn it!

At times in life, we map out EXACTLY how life is supposed to go.  We plan, prepare, and move towards an end we’ve developed in our lives.  And rarely do things EVER work out the way we imagine them.  So we beat our heads against the walls, we fret over the best-laid plans gone wrong, and we find very little peace in our lives.  And that, my friends, is natural and is EXACTLY what happens when we forget that GOD has a plan for us!!

He really does!! I am convinced with all of my being that God has a plan for every one of us, and if we follow His plan we WILL find peace and fulfillment in life that we will NEVER find without Him.  But we need to remember that His plans are NOT our plans … THEY ARE EVEN BETTER!!!  Sometimes we have to get a little ways down the road to see that, but it is true.  At least, that has ALWAYS been my experience.  In other words, this is not something I read in the Bible and HOPE is true:  This is something I’ve experienced OVER and OVER again in my life.  When the best plans I’ve made in my life go south, I’ve got to know that God has a BETTER plan for me.  It’s true!!!

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) “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.”
