My plan vs God's plan

I spent most of the last two days in tears.
 It has been uncontrollable really.
I am sensitive, yes, but this is more than that.
Lately I have felt broken, discouraged, lost.
I don't like feeling that way.
I mean, who does?.
I know that God has already mapped out what is to come,
my faith is shaken.

{My plan...}

  Come home from Ohio with the kids and find a job.
Surely with my qualifications, that wouldn't be too difficult.
I was wrong, and it has been nothing but difficult.
My plan was to work at a job where my hours would work around
the kids schedule, I was offered such job...
 a job I prayed so hard for
but the pay was basically minimum wage. That was not in my plans.
conflicted, confused!
The Lord certainly knows our situation...He knows what I need.

"For I know the plans I have for you"
declares the Lord
"plans to prosper you and
not to harm you.
Plans to give you hope and a future".
Jeremiah 29:11

{God's plan...}

Is so much better then my plan.
I know this in my heart. I do!
My head on the other hand is not so cooperative.
It believes it knows best at times.

I am unsure of what God's plan is for right now,
Is it his plan that I be home for my children as
they make the adjustment from Christian School
to public school?
For Ethan, from Jr. High to High School?
This is a scary time for my Wishes.
For this Mama as well.

I have no doubt that God knows what He is doing.
I do have doubts about how it will all work out
I must simply and steadfastly do the footwork,
and know that
I have no control over the outcome.

Is there something you need prayer for today?  Would love to pray for you,
just leave a comment and I will include you in my prayers.
Thanks for reading along...I am blessed that you took the time.

I know how that goes... sometimes the waiting to see what His plan is, is the hardest thing to do! Sending happy thoughts your way friend.
