My Intention, His Plan
It’s amazing how we can attempt to plan our day ahead, based on our day(s) before. I had experienced a day in which I was emotionally and physically drained. Exhausted is more like it. In addition, I began to hold grudges and resentment toward others because of the wrong I felt was done to me. My plan was to be silent and disengaged. In other words- Everyone, leave me alone! As a result, my plan of action was set (or so I thought) as I told God the night before how I wanted to be alone. Furthermore, asking if He could create an atmosphere of some sort to ensure my wish was granted. My job consists of ongoing communication with employees and clients alike. How was I going to achieve that feat? I had no clue. Perhaps I could send some non-verbal vibe that indicated quiet time was sufficient for that day. Little did I know what lay ahead. What I wasn’t prepared for, was the plan He had in mind on that specific day. The gift He wanted me to use for His Glory. He planned my day in which a message would be conveyed through me to the ones He had in mind. What became my intentions of silence (under disgruntled motives), turned into words of encouragement, confirmation, and prayers of blessings to others. That was His will for my life on that day. In turn, I too was blessed, encouraged, and re-affirmed of what He had in mind for my life. As my attitude of frustration and hurt changed into accepting His plan, I was reminded of the gift He entrusted to me. This gift placed on the inside was not meant for my eyes and ears only. It would be a disservice to God and His children, if I buried my talents based on a bad day or emotional barometer!
Proverbs 19:21- Many are the plans in a person’s heart. But it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. (NIV)
So, in obedience and submission to my Heavenly Father I want to re-introduce A Single Moment: Encouraging Hearts, Inspiring Minds. May your soul be refreshed, your heart restored, and may your faith be renewed as He transforms your life with relentless pursuit. Let’s go on this journey together!
