The Purpose and The Plan


Everybody has had a plan for their life. Always striving to achieve a set goal in mind. But sometimes the plan and the purpose for our lives is unknown. Not that we didn’t have a direction to go in. It was circumstances that took over and changes our direction. Sometimes we just can’t help it. We may even try to fight it but to no avail. The flood in Louisiana has changed my plan and somewhat my purpose in life. We finished clearing out my house. All of the furniture and things we packs were brought to a storage facility. I’m dog tired. I know my sons are exhausted. But we finished the 1st phase of restoring the house. My family has lived there for a long time. The boys grew up there. And I spent most of my adult life in that house. And now it is time for a change. I don’t know exactly what is going to happen, but it is going to happen. It is now in the hands of God to decide our fate. I think that is what He wanted all along. That I was getting in the way too much. Sometimes we say one thing and do another. But God is patient with us and will work out circumstances for us. I have been relatively calm through this whole process. I wanted to break down and cry or just scream. But I know there is a better way in all of this. As it says in the bible: Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
