Forced Growth

I’m a planner. I don’t mind if the plan needs to change but I abhor not having a plan.

I plan for growth. Growth in all areas of my life. Spiritual. Physical. Mental. Relational. Professional.

Some have more detail than others but all areas have a plan. But the plan doesn’t make growth happen. Executing the plan makes something happen but it doesn’t always make growth happen. There are too many unknowns. Too many things beyond my control.

That’s why faith is always a part of my plan. I try as best I can to plan according to God’s will for my life. And when I think I’ve done that and the plan doesn’t seem to be going the right way, I look at what I’ve learned, what God is showing me,  and I re-do my plan.

In the past I’ve stuck to my plan too long and didn’t evaluate if it was time to change. I can’t force growth. But I can plan for it.

Until Everyone Hears,

What are your thoughts?
