Morning Cup of Joe – Change of Plans

Sometimes things don’t go as planned and when that happens, don’t question it. I had this bad habit of automatically thinking the worst when something didn’t go my way; I know I am not the only one who thought or thinks like this. As soon as it didn’t go as I planned it, I automatically defaulted to the worst possible outcome. I am better equipped to handle changes now and I’d like to share with you how I was able to overcome this obstacle.

First, understand that change is inevitable and nothing is constant except change. Simply, accept the fact that if your plans change, the new direction you are being led may be where you were intended to go; don’t ignore it and don’t challenge it. While most people are uncomfortable with change, that does not mean you have to follow suit. Plans change, plans get canceled and plans get scrapped; this is absolutely normal.

When the winds automatically change on your sail, learn to trust your new direction. Some of us are so stuck on forcing a plan into action that we neglect to see the possible improvements to the overall plan. Understand that God is in complete control. Your plans have changed in the past and the world didn’t end. When things don’t go as planned, there is usually a good reason why. Sometimes the reason may never be discovered yet that should not prevent you from moving forward.

Remember, plans are meant to be improved. That improvement is based on your ability to accept change and your deep understanding that change happens whether you like it or not. Embrace your new plan, which may be the direction you were meant to go in the first place.

To The Top!
