Change of Plans

Change of plans. Those three words can strike fear and frustration into the hearts of many. It's that unexpected twist in the road, the deviation from the carefully laid-out path, that can leave us feeling disoriented and unsettled. And lately, it seems like change of plans has become a constant companion in my life, testing my ability to adapt and throwing me off balance.

I have always been someone who thrives on routine and predictability. I find comfort in knowing what to expect and having a clear plan in place. But life has a funny way of throwing curveballs when we least expect them. Whether it's a sudden shift in work assignments, a change in travel plans, or even a personal matter that requires flexibility, change has become a constant presence in my life.

To say that I dislike change of plans would be an understatement. It feels like a disruption to the carefully constructed order of my life, leaving me feeling unsteady and unsure of what lies ahead. It's a struggle to let go of the control I so desperately crave and embrace the uncertainty that change brings.

However, amidst the chaos and disorientation, I have found solace in prayer and faith in God. Turning to prayer, I seek guidance and strength to navigate through the unexpected twists and turns. I find comfort in knowing that God has a plan for me, even if it deviates from my own.

Through prayer, I am reminded of the importance of surrendering to God's will. It's not always easy, but I am learning to trust that His plans are far greater than my own. I am reminded of the verse from Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."

Flexibility is a skill I am cultivating as I navigate the ever-changing landscape of life. It's about embracing the unknown, adapting to new circumstances, and finding the beauty in the unexpected. It's a continuous journey of growth and learning to let go of my own expectations and surrender to what God has in store for me.

And in this surrender, I have found that God's plan often exceeds my own limited vision. He has a way of guiding me towards opportunities and experiences that I never would have imagined for myself. It's in those moments of uncertainty and change that I discover new strengths, develop resilience, and deepen my faith.

So, as I continue to grapple with the discomfort of change of plans, I hold onto my faith and trust in God's guiding hand. I remind myself that it's in the moments of disorientation that growth happens. And through prayer and flexing to do God's will, I am finding peace and purpose in the midst of life's unexpected twists and turns.
