Life is FULL of changes to the plans we make.
I make plans, life happens, things get shifted, God steers me around a corner and life looks vastly different yesterday than the day before.
In the past, I haven't been so kind on myself when life changes my plans. I have white knuckled it through some situations I didn't have to, I made my own life even harder, I chose to fight when it was perfectly ok to say, "I am going to roll with the changes instead."
Again, life looks vastly different than the day before, but beautiful at the same time. Even with a painful week and a half behind me, life is SO good. God is SO good. Besides, vastly different isn't always bad.
Right now, it's not really how I planned on my life looking, but there are SO many situations in life that look BETTER than expected: business is booming, I am growing, I have a ton of fun events coming up, spring is here, friends and family are grand... God is ever present and showing up.
I have to say, my little plan of expecting amazing things to happen, of LOOKING to be blessed has opened a floodgate. I have experienced more blessing and favor in the last two weeks than I can ever remember and I am finding JOY in sowing out back into my life.
