Plans and Goals. Are They in His Season?

Plans and Goals. Are They In His Season

God planted dreams in me.
He gives me something to aim for; to glorify Him.

Where I’ve erred is thinking that I have to figure out how I was going to make it all happen.
I haven’t submitted my plans to Him.

My dreams and desires became consuming thoughts.
All I’ve thought about is THIS blog and my writing; how to better design, which platform to use and how to be a better writer.

There’s a stirring in me and I began wondering how to get it done on my own.
I mean…. I’ve been doing this writing thing for about 8 years now. It’s a rhythm of life.

I’ve heard His Word (rhema) before telling me. “Your path is already marked. Rest in where I have you. Position yourself. Let Me develop you.”
I think “Lord, what if I miss it?”

He gently speaks His Word to me (logos): Trust Me. Do good. Dwell. Feed on My faithfulness. Delight in Me.

So. I sit.
It actually looks more like sitting on my hands and rocking back and forth in anticipation,
trying so hard not to become anxious!

Y’all, I know that if I MAKE things happen, there’s no God in it. “Proud” would be written across my shirt.

Its a time of waiting.
It’s also time to be under mentorship.

You younger people, submit yourselves to your elders.
Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility,
for God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God,
that He may exalt you in due time,
casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:5-7

As God is revealing all of this to me, its becoming clear.
What good is web design and blog platform and better writing skills if
  • there’s no clear biblical direction
  • the words aren’t edifying
  • the tone isn’t from a place of love
It’s a season of submission and I’m more than certain that God has rightly positioned me to receive.

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more
in knowledge and all discernment,
that you may approve the things that are excellent,
that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ,
being filled with the fruits of righteousness
which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
Philippians 1:9-11
Words that come to mind right now are:
hide (in Him).

It’s a new season!

What has God spoken to you about your plans and goals?
