God, what is the plan?

"God's plan for  your life far exceeds the circumstances of your day."
I'm sure all of us, at one time or another, have wondered what God's plan for our life is.  I know I have many times.  I've been through a lot, yet I've always come through each situation stronger and wiser.  Still, I constantly wonder what God's ultimate Plan for my life is.

I know we're not suppose to question God's plan, which is hard for me at times.  I get impatient while waiting for his timing.  I loss faith when people I care about are in sad, stressful or tragic situations.  

We're to have faith and believe that God knows what's best, accept his timing and pray for strength.  It sure would be easier if we knew where he will eventually lead us or what our lives will be like later on.

What I do know, or believe without fail, is that God doesn't want us to be in hard situations forever.  He wants us to learn the lessons we need to grow, for our greater good, which will lead us to the ultimate goal of God and that is to be caring, compassionate and above all Happy.  
"Be willing to leave everything behind in order to pursue God's plan for you."
I've been in situations more than once, where I had to leave everything behind to pursue God's plan for my self, as while as my youngest son.  None of those times were easy, however I can honestly look back without regrets, fully seeing now the better plans God had for us.

Those memories give me hope during difficult situations and restore my faith that God once again has a plan. A plan bigger and better than what I can think of myself.  So I'm praying for guidance and strength to help me through once again.  Believing with all my heart, that things will work out better than I can even imagine in my dreams.

 Praying that all my friends, current and past.  Believing there is a plan and a better tomorrow for us all.


  1. I know and believe that God's plans are better than ours. I have a tough time trying not to tell God what I think is best for me. I'm learning daily to let go and let God handle it.

  2. It's difficult when we are in the middle of it and don't know where we are going. Sometimes God is taking us through something just to make us stronger.

  3. I've got one more year left of school at the end of this semester, and have been wondering about God's plan for me a lot lately. Keeping my fingers crossed that it's something really good!

  4. I've been thinking about this a lot and wondered, when when when?? Ever have that feeling that you're not where you're supposed to be? And then again, maybe you are? And if God has a plan, then how come we're not supposed to know about it? Aren't we part of that plan? I've been discouraged with my line of work, with feeling stagnant and misplaced I guess you can say. I pray every single day and always ask for God to release His gifts and favor on me. "I'm ready now!" I do believe that sometimes, when prayers aren't answered, it's simply because you're not quite ready, not quite 'there' yet. Eh… patience needs more improvement on my part. I'll go with that.

    Beautiful post.
