I planned to relax today. She planned to spend time with her friend. The company planned its business strategy around a 30% conversion rate. We planned to collaborate with certain key people.
Plans are interesting things, as they are predictions we make based on our experience and desires. But, not everything works out how we had planned. In that moment of realization that what we expected or wanted will not happen, it is our reaction that really shows the world who we are. We may respond with quick wits and with it quick action. Other times we may just let it go and release it into the ether. Whatever we do, it should be healthy and good, and most of all not stressed about.
It is important to remember that:
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21 – NIV
