"BEFORE YOU KNEW THIS WAS IT, HE WAS PREPARING YOU FOR IT."
Those are words I think everyone needs to hear. Trust, even me! Which is why I want to spread the word...
I would definitely call my self a planner. I plan everything down to the T. At least I like to think I am... Until God laughs at my plans... Here is a little small example of what I mean. I told you guys in my last post how I would be taking classes this Fall. Well that was a surprise to me too! Haha! Months ago and I do mean MONTHS before Jay and I even decided to start trying to grow our family. I applied to the University here but I never heard back from them. So I just assumed I didn't get in and pushing school back another semester wouldn't be too bad considering I'm almost done. So after some time had gone by and some discussing.. Jay and I decided to go forth with our plan in growing our family and taking one more semester off. We definitely had/have plans in finishing school since we are both actually almost done... Just in our time and pace. We had a plan. I had a plan! Until I was laying in bed one night going through my emails when I came across my acceptance email and letter. Well I'm sure you know how shocked I was being 6 months pregnant and all. Not going to lie I panicked a little (a lot). I even considered just denying the offer. I get very flustered when my plans don't go as I plan them. I just figured with my original plan baby would be old enough to where I wouldn't worry as much when I did go back. So I didn't know how I would do it with basically a newborn. (I worry about everything - Thank god for Jay who speaks sense into me and my family) But after talking to Jay, my family, and praying on it I decided to go for it. Jay and my family were very supportive convincing me that I had to do this. To have faith and trust it will all work out. I got this! There is always a reason for things... and honestly, after much thought and prayer I came to a HUGE realization... God was and is laughing at every plan I ever make and the fear I put in my self when things don't go as planned. ( and this goes for all of us!) In all reality he's the man with the plan and I have to let go and let god. He has already prepared me for all of this. I know this is a small example compared to bigger issues people may have but the bigger picture is...
The reason I am telling you guys this is because I wanted to remind you the same way I needed to be reminded... we all think we have our lives figured out or even wonder why certain things play out the way they do. We want everything to go exactly how we imagine them. But don't stress life! Don't worry! In this life all we can do is take each day slowly and have faith. God is guiding you with every step you take even when you don't think he is. God knows the plans he has for you. Nothing is coincidental and he will never give you anything you can't handle and he hasn't prepared you for. Trust in him but also trust in yourself. No matter what's going on in your life you've got this!
"God wouldn't PUT YOU IN IT if he didn't PUT IT IN YOU. Keep going!"
