I blogged a couple of days ago My Personal Update that shared I’m working on a personal project. Before starting this project that could be as much as 4 months long, I first checked with myself and asked if it was the right timing and I felt that the time was right. I then prayed and released that if it was in God’s plan it would work out. And I have said that affirmation daily.
“Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from Me—nevertheless, not My will, but Yours, be done.” Luke 22:42
It doesn’t matter what our plans are if it’s not the right time on our path. I know there is a difference between forcing a plan and allowing a plan.
When I moved to Georgia in 2014, it unfolded like a fairy tale. I found a job, a place to live, made friends, got support, and became comfortable in my environment very quickly. I had my heart set on the move. I had dreams and plans. I think God gave me the desire of my heart and allowed the plan because I never felt it was forced.
Forcing what is not meant for us is not what is in the plan. When we have to force things it’s a sign that it’s not meant to be. Sometimes doors are closed for a reason to protect us or allow something better. I have also forced things and people in my life and regretted that I decided to force it.
Allowing and acceptance are sometimes challenging when we want something to work out but we must believe that it’s not part of the plan. If we are impatient then we will often find the teaching of patience in our wants and desires.
I think Dr. Wayne Dyer said it best!
