A lot of people ask me how in the world am I planning for the future without fear. Others ask me how do I wake up in the morning thinking it is always the weekend. The answer is simple and that is planning with God. I carry a planner every single day where I write down my goals, thoughts, and my wishes for the next few months. Let me tell you that the next few months though are mind-blowing! The more I see the hand of Jesus work in my life as each second that goes by, I can’t help but smile from ear to ear.
Here is the thing, when you let Jesus work then you learn to let go and let him drive your life to where he wants you to be at it’s the most amazing result ever. At times, things might not seem clear because in order to get to where you need to be you have to pass through a whole lot of things in your life. It can even be a divorce!! A few things that I have learned and seen along with lessons are the following:
1. Relationship– in order to have someone in your life you need to love yourself, love God, and most important to remember that if someone is going to love you it will be because of who you are. Do not pretend someone that you are not!
2. Vacation– If you are planning to go somewhere, but it all crashes down do not even get mad. God might be protecting you from an accident along the way, or even something worse.
3. Friendships– Find a friend that not only you can relate to but, loves, and respects God! That makes such a big difference especially when you plan with that person special events because they understand your reason on how something needs to be a certain way.
4. Job– You are trying to find a job but it is hard right? Do not worry because if you are faithful to yourself, pray, and never give up then the right job will come to you. Sometimes when one door closes it is because it was not meant for you.
I can name a whole lot more in this post, but I don’t want to make this too long. All I can say is, in the almost Fall of 2018 during a youth camp, at that very exact moment….I decided to let go and let God. From that point on, God took away and gave me more. God showed me the truth and made me go to sleep laughing. God made a few switches, without me even doing nothing, and brought me better people. You cannot tell me God isn’t real because I see him work every single day.
Born and raised in a Christian home, baptized at the age of 17, and I did not let go completely until last year. I am only human, I can only do so much, but God brings me up when I feel like I am about to fall. Never did I see that till I decided to let go! Doing so, the Lord has made my plans brighter, my path bigger, and my sense of people that are bad influence even stronger. When you let Jesus control your life you will see his plans for you become reality, and bigger than your imagination.
I pray that you who are reading this, may all your plans come true and if they don’t you will see that there is something better for you. I pray that one day, when you decide to let go, and let HIM may you hear the voice of God saying,
“Hello my dear child, it is so good to see you… a g a i n . ”
Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.
