A coworker and I were talking the other day and she mentioned a common adage “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plan.” We were discussing changes in life, in the nation, and in the workplace. We talked about how so much was outside of our control. She said you can do the same thing over and over but not always get the same results. Circumstances change - circumstances outside of our control. For a type A, plan ahead, and honestly - control freak - like myself, that can be a hard truth for me to handle. I was contemplating that when she said, “But I know no matter what happens, my God is in control and it’s going to be ok.” What a beautiful sentiment.

I am currently reading a devotional, Beautiful Uncertainty, by Mandy Hale. In it she writes, “I found that when you seek Him first, the things that aren’t part of His plan are taken away.” Do you struggle with maintaining control like I do? Does uncertainty seem anything but beautiful? Continue to seek Him first. It’s going to be ok. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. -Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)
