By Accident Not By Design

Good morning! 

I recently took a trip to Muskogee. I was not familiar with the exact location I was trying to reach, so I used my GPS to find it. I didn’t want to end up in the wrong place. I didn’t want to end up somewhere by accident not by design. As I thought about it, it occured to me that that’s how I’d lived a large portion of my life. I  had allowed the course of nature to direct me in the path of least resistance. I no longer desire to live like that. I want to be intentional. I want to live not just my life, but each day, on purpose. 

I’ve recently been studying for an upcoming certification. I put an intentional plan into place in an attempt to achieve it. A good plan. Or so I thought. But what I failed to plan for was my busyness overcame God’s plan for my life. And therefore I hit a wall. A proverbial brick wall. Hard. 

Sometimes we get so busy and wrapped up in our own lives that we forget the purpose behind them. We are driven by life’s daily demands and we soon forget that God always has a greater purpose. His purpose for our lives not only encompass our own life, but all the lives around us. 

Today I reach out to you and encourage you to stop the busyness. Don’t let it consume you.  Follow the plan. God’s plan. All the best laid plans in the world will falter if they aren’t God’s plan.  Keep your eyes upon Jesus. He’s the ultimate GPS. He gives you direction. Not by accident,  but by design. He is your final destination.  

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21

Love and laughter,
