When Things Don't Happen As Soon As You Plan

 I know this title is similar to my previous  blog post, but these are thoughts that have been on my mind lately.

When things do not happen as soon as we plan we often get impatient and stressed out. Let me make this blog post personal. 

When things do not happen as soon as I plan i get impatient and stressed out. I question God even though I know His timing is perfect. 

I wanted to be married by now with children.  I'm single.

I wanted to have a book published, at least one by this age. Where do I start?

I wanted to still be singing in Churches and at Festivals and Events. When I was a teenager singing from place to place I dreamed that by the time I was the age I am now I would have my own tour bus, a record deal, a booking agent. I would have CD's out, sing with the Gaither Homecoming Friends, tour with my favorites in Southern Gospel and Contemporary Gospel.

I wanted to star in Christian movies.  I wanted to star in Hallmark movies. How do I even begin to audition for movies?

I wanted, I wanted, I wanted, I still want.  I dream of all of the above happening. I know one day each one of those desires will take place.  I know that dreams I have not discussed in this blog post will happen as well. 

The clincher, the part we, the part I don't like very well, that is trusting God.  O, I love God. I know His plans are far greater than my plans. I know He put these desires in my heart. I know His timing is perfect. But, how many times have I fretted asking God why my timing couldn't be His timing? Truth is  it can be, but in a reverse sense. I want God to be on my time schedule. Instead He wants my timing to be His time schedule.

So I am going to trust God.  I am going to pray and listen for His guidance. I am going to do what I can to be prepared for when the time comes for my desires to be granted.

I am going to work to become a better woman. A woman who loves God even more then I already do. A woman who allows God to prepare my heart and mind, my emotions, everything He needs to work on, so when He does give me my Mr. Right I will be ready. Sure we will grow together, but I have growing to do while I am single.

I will continue uploading YouTube videos of me singing, and singing live on Facebook when God prompts me too. I will sing, sing, sing. Sing in the shower, sing outside, sing while I'm working, sing in the vehicle. Sing to the birds, the bee's, my dogs, my horses. Sing to my God whose timing is perfect.  I will practice my piano until it becomes second nature and then keep on playing.

I will continue making YouTube videos so I will be comfortable in front of a camera when the day comes that I get to act in a Christian movie and in a Hallmark movie.

I will write. I will blog. I will write poems, thoughts, whatever comes to mind that I feel I need to write I will write, and when God tells me it is time to begin writing my first book to be published, I will listen and I will obey.

Bottom line.  I will trust in my God who has never failed me and never will.  

When things don't happen as soon as I plan, what should I do?  Here is the answer,

Trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. In all my ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct my paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

When Things Don't Go Your Way

What do you do when things don't go your way. When things don't go as you planned?  When life throws your a curve ball. When you keep striking out and getting benched. We have all been there.

We make our plans and layout our plans step by step only to see them crumble.

My traumatic brain injury wasn't in my plan, everything that went with the brain injury wasn't in my plan.  Have health issues relapses was not in my plan. The man I thought was the one being with someone else wasn't in my plan. Hoping to be married with a family by now was in my plan, but I am not, being single at thirty-one was not in my plan.

So many things in life do not go as you plan. I could list so much more, but I won't. You get the general idea.  We don't always get our way.   Sometimes our plans are not God's plans for our lives.  We will hurt, we will go through trials and tribulations, we will have unhappy times, but we will also experience joy, peace, blessings, and happiness while wrapped in the sweet, comforting love of Jesus.

No matter what is not going through way. No matter what is not going my way, I can rest assure God has me. His plans and ways are perfect. He has ordained my steps and calls me to walk with Him. To hold His hand and trust His plans. His heart is pure, His thoughts towards me are thoughts of good and not of evil.

No matter the challenges we face, rest assure the God gives us hope found in His Word, the Bible, His love letter to us.

"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." Jeremiah 1:5


"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows right well." Psalm 139:14


"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God to them who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28 

Trust God. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

Remember no matter how it feels like you cannot continue, you can by relying on the strength of Jesus.   "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 

Things won't always go our way, but to live a life worth living, to live our best life that God intended, we must trust His plans. Trust His purpose, Trust His heart. God loves us and only wants what is best for His children. Don't fret, don't fear, God is with you. Take His hand and let Him lead you into His ways which are perfect beyond anything we can imagine. 

Yes there will be hard times but Jesus said He is with us always. 

"Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:20
