God’s Plans, Not Mine

plans 1

Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)

21 Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
    but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

God is strategic.  He has laid out an exact plan for our lives right down to the very smallest details.  He knows the people we need to meet in order to fulfill our destinies.  He knows who is going to give us a good break in our lives and who is going to put in a good word for us on our behalf.  He knows when someone is going to be there to help us through difficult times.  God has it all figured out.  He is not vague or approximate.  He is orchestrating our lives right down to the very second, causing us to be at the right place at the right time so we can meet the right people who He has ordained before this world was even created.

We can look over our lives and see how, time after time, God directed our steps to the exact moment.  If we had been 10 seconds earlier or 10 seconds later, things would have played out differently.  That’s God orchestrating His plan.  That’s God ordering our steps.

As I look back on my life I can think of things that I wish I could have done or handled differently.  At the same time I realize that I had to go through those things to get to the person I am today.  I am not yet the person God wants me to be, but thank God I am not the person I used to be.  I have come a long way, but I still have many more miles to go.  To be honest, I am glad that I have God guiding me along the way because if I was truly deciding my own path, I’m not very sure that I would get even close to the place that God is taking me.  I am so thankful to God for guiding me along on my journey and I am just trying my best to enjoy every step of the journey.

All we have to do is stay faithful to Him and follow His leading because in the end, it is God’s plans, not mine that will prevail.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
