Our Plans Vs Reality…

Your plan

Lately I have begun to think that being human is the biggest weakness ever. God created us in his image and likeness; we represent him in so many ways. However he did not give us the ability to know or even have the slightest idea what ourĀ  tomorrows might look like. I mean, the depth of that weakness just leaves me wondering why I even bother making plans. Why do I even bother preparing for a tomorrow I will never have control over? A tomorrow that I can paint as beautifully as my human mind can master, all positive and joyful…having all my heart’s desires met as any other greedy human being would wish only to find out it doesn’t turn out as I have dreamt it…not even close. What is the point of fantasizing… it seems like a waste of time I’m just saying.The stark reality is that life is nothing like anything we can ever imagine with our limited minds. Life turns out the way it does, it is beyond our wildest imagination.

I remember making plans last year…I saw myself doing so many things, being with wonderful people,having the time of my life. Last few months I had the same plans, even wilder, crazier!!!. Last month I had plans…

None of these plans turned out the way I thought. I am pretty sure some of the things that didn’t happen that was me being saved (truly) but some…I still don’t understand why they didn’t happen as planned.

Through it all, as a believer I do know that God did this to make sure we remember who we are in Him. He is the one who knows it all and if we had the power to control our future we wouldn’t need him. I know that the Christian way is to live in faith…that is to hope in the things we cannot see. And if I can be truly honest I have had some big dreams come true in my life, but I HAD TO WAIT LOOOONG!!!! Well that sure keeps me in my place…

At the end of the day, we still hope and we still dream. When those dreams and hopes come crashing or we have to go through valleys and cross to get there maybe we are learning something along the way. I know I am! If our dreams and hopes never materialize into anything maybe it’s just a sign that there are better things in store for us.

What do I know?

You are enough…Mid-week motivation!!!

You are special and unique

You are enough just as you are…

Your life is so full, you just need to look deeper to see what you have that others wish they had. Its the little things. Celebrate those. Moments of solitude are not meant to discourage you but to build your character. Embrace those, find yourself and revel in your own company. Find out what it is that makes you tick.

You are enough. You have talents and capabilities. Keep yourself busy with those. Don’t buy into the lies sold by the devil, you know those ones he whispers in your ear every morning to discourage you {you are not good enough, you are not smart enough, you are too young, you are too slow}…whatever the case may be for you

Time spent thinking about your weaknesses is time wasted. Nurture your strong points {you are fun to be around, you are a comfort to your friends, you have a nice smile, you can sing a tune}…whatever the case may be for you

Today is special, once it is gone there won’t be another day just like it. There is no time like the present to do that thing you have been putting off.

So what did you do today besides feel sorry for yourself? Don’t you know that you are enough? You are complete as you are.

Life…

I’m sitting in a room somewhere in Europe…in the dark staring outside the window. It’s almost 12 midnight.

I wonder, is this what life is about? Is this what I have become? Is this all there is?

I wonder at the emptiness in my heart…but then its fleeting because when I count my blessings my heart is filled.

Life is full of paradoxes..one minute I am sad, the next I am on a joyful high…

Why do I let people control my emotions? Why do I let people have so much power to alter my mood?

You call me heartless…I hear you. Maybe I am because I haven’t allowed myself to feel.

But ask the guy from a few months ago…I felt something for him.So I think I just have the wisdom to know that I cannot fall for everyone I meet.

This is not about love though, this is about life… I really wish I could care what someone else thinks of me.

I really wish I could apologize for being who I am…

Why is love…those three words “I love you”…why are they so important?

Maybe I am the one who needs help…

As I stare outside my window at a few minutes to midnight.

Silence has a way of communicating, maybe if I listen longer I will find the answers…198

I know myself because I have dared to be silent and stare at nothing….
