Have you ever sat down at the computer and just started writing? Writing what is on your heart and not worrying about how it comes out on paper? Have you ever allowed yourself those moments of creativity and then just sit back and marvel at what God placed on your heart?
I really couldn't think of anything of to write for today, so I just decided instead of starting with a title, I was just going to write something.
And how often do we do that in life? How often do we start something that when we are done just amazes us? I am a planner. I like to think long term, I even schedule my hair appointments over a month in advance. Yeah. I know. I like to know what is around the bend in the road, to know what I am going to do in the next 15 minutes.
But God doesn't always let us see what is ahead of us. We can have best laid plains, but what if God has something different in mind? What if He says, "No, I want you to do this instead." Can we say that we will willingly let Him guide our lives?
I want to be published someday. That is my plan. To write a really good story and try to sell it. But if what God says no? What if He has something better in mind? "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 (Casey paraphrase.)
Can I honestly say I won't be upset or disappointed at His change in my plans? Well maybe, but if I truly want to be at the center of His will for my life, I need to be willing to lay aside my plans for my life and completely surrounder to Him. That is the best laid plan you can ever hope to have.
To be in the center of His will.
