Life Plan???

I’ve got no idea where I’m going in life.question mark

Correction. I have 1,001 ideas of where to go in life, but am so overwhelmed by all the wonderful prospects that I can’t decide where to go.

It’s like planning a vacation.  There are SO many great options, but where should I go?

A friend of mine mentioned the idea of Life Planning to me not to long ago, and suggested Chris and I look into it.  I thought it was a great idea, and have spent a small amount of effort looking at it.

Well in preparing to write a blog over the last week and half, I’ve done pretty much nothing but think about my life.  What could/should I write about.  I can write about a myriad of topics. I’ve  got almost a full page of blog post ideas already written down, and tons more that I’ve come up with while not near my computer.

In fact, I’ve had so many its a bit overwhelming!  I keep wanting to kick myself for not starting a blog sooner – and researching all this stuff sooner!  If only I’d know a year ago – I could be so much further ahead. I had so much more time before my wonderful blessing daughter came along, that I wasted.

Sigh.

Can’t waste more time though sitting and grumbling at myself for wasting time.  I can start fresh today. God’s mercy is new each morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).

I have to keep reminding myself that! Seeking God’s forgiveness is sometimes easier than forgiving myself.  He keeps reminding me though that He chose me before the foundations of the earth to be ‘holy and blameless’ before Him (Ephesians 1:4).

That’s a pretty big deal!  He knew all I was going to do, but still chose me to be holy and blameless!  That’s a big SIGH of RELIEF! (Literally, I just sighed really big and deep!)

Do you realize this means I don’t have to perfect?!? And neither do you!

What a revelation! So with that behind me I’m going to move imperfectly forward…

Starting with writing out a Life Plan – here on my blog. I’m going to seek wisdom for my life.

I hope you’ll join me!
