A Master plan is defined as a general plan or program for achieving an objective. I am a master planner. I plan my days, my schedule, my life very specifically.
A friend recently updated their facebook status with a quote from the book Jesus Calling. It said, "Glorifying and enjoying Me is a higher priority than maintaining a tidy, structured life. Give up your striving to keep everything under control - an impossible task and a waste of precious energy."
A tidy, structured life is so much what I have longed to create for myself; usually failing. I love the next line, "Give up your striving to keep everything under control." Give it up? Me???
You know, it's good to have a Master Plan. But what I am finding is that it is better to trust the Master's plan. Amen.
Proverbs 19:21 -- Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.
