Un-planning


At the end of 2011 I sat, thought, planned. Decisions were made on what to work on for the new year. Goals were planned out. And then......

Life intervened.

Nothing bad, but it became clear that goals and plans that I had made must be revisited, changed. And this time I must set aside my desires for Christ's.

It has not been easy this letting go, the un-planning of a year. Yet in the surrendering, in the giving in peace has been found.

And so a new habit for the year has emerged.......one of surrender, of letting Christ guide our days rather than the schedule.

There is joy in the un-planning.

  1. I'm such a planner! But this year, God is training me to only plan on one thing- surrendering my all to Him.
