The Monkey Wrench

The Monkey Wrench

My plans have not gone as planned for over a month.

the Heart of man plans his way but the Lord establishes his steps.  Proverbs 16 - 9

The weather, a cold, and internet issues have all played a part in plans having a monkey wrench thrown in them.

For years, too many to count, I’ve been a planner. Planning meals, workout routines, setting goals for projects…
That’s how you get stuff done, right?

I’ve had to let it go. Lately, my plan of action consists of asking God what next?

Plans. We can make them, we plan our lives away, and we might even believe we are in control when everything goes “as planned”.

But I’ve learned in this past month it doesn’t matter what I write down in my planner. Our day is in God’s hands. He might even throw a monkey wrench in your planning system to get your attention.

So instead of trying to force plans into my day – and getting worked up and crazy upset when they don’t go my way… I’m learning, as best I can, to accept the day as it comes. I make loose plans.
Yes, I have plenty of to-do’s, need-to’s, and want-tos.

The question is, do they have to be done at the precise time I planned? The way I see it? Unless it’s an appointment with someone, there is leeway.

So, My goal for this year? Is loosely plan the day. A day at a time.

And take time to smell the roses.

And enjoy each day the Good Lord blesses me with.

What about you?

Until next time, enjoy your day and the journey

  1. Oh Adele I love the picture of Darcy smelling the roses. It took me a long time to pray for God’s will and not my own, but that is when my life changed for the better! Beautiful post!
