Although I’m a
recovering procrastinator, believe it or not I love planning. My favorite part of planning is making a list.
I loooove making list.
Give me some colorful post-it notes and a pen that writes really well…and I’m in Heaven!
To-do list. Shopping list. Wish list. What-I’m-not-going-to-do-tomorrow list…
I enjoy it all.
But here’s the thing… creating list can get a little complicated when it comes to specific areas of our lives.
Like “The Perfect Man” list. Women have 235 items on the list and if the guys they date don’t come close to it then it’s just not meant to be.
When we make a list, typically there’s a level of expectation, right?
If I make a grocery list, I’m expecting or planning to purchase the items on that list. Which makes me think that some lists can also be viewed as a plan of what is expected.
One of my favorite quotes is “You want to make God laugh, then tell Him about your plans.”
List are plans that we sometimes forget…are subject to change; especially if the plans are not in His will.
Do you trust that His plan is greater than your list?
Tear up that list, put away those post-it notes and get ready for the ride of your life! Trust me. You’ve got a great Driver.
I’d love to hear from you! Have you ever been guilty of not letting go of your what’s-going-to-happen-in-my-life-whether-its-in-His-plan-or-not list?
