Big Plans

You see, I tend to make these grand plans. 
On how my life is going to turn out.
How many kids we will have. 
Where we will live, how our finances will look.
And then life happens- and it doesn't work out according to my plans at all.
God calls me to surrender and I half do. I say "Okay Lord, your way not mine." 
.....then I precede to make plan B. 
Cause it always turns out that Plan B- was my plan too, and then God calls me to surrender that as well. 
Usually the call to surrender comes in the form of life hitting me over the head...hard. 

And so then I am left plan-less saying 
"Lord provide, Lord lead....cause I've got nothing"

I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
Jeremiah 29:11 (Message)
