Sweet Tweet: Plans

“We are individuals before God and He’s got an individual plan for our lives. He doesn’t do everything the same way in everyone’s life” -@JoyceMeyer

This can be a tough concept to grasp, especially for women. We tend to constantly compare our lives to others and wonder why things haven’t worked out the exact same way for us.

Like when you are surrounded by friends who are getting married and you’re still single. You wonder why God hasn’t brought the guy for you yet. Don’t panic. God didn’t forget about you. His plan for your life is different.

Or when it seems like everything is going right for everyone else, and you continue to struggle. You look at their life and wonder why you don’t see the same blessings in your own. But that’s their plan, not yours.

God doesn’t use the same plan for everyone’s life.  Just as we are individuals, we have individual plans for our lives and they are all different.

God’s plan for your life is unique. But, not only is it custom made just for you, it is also good.

I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out- plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.  Jeremiah 29:11

God is creative. He never uses the same plan twice. Think of how boring it would be if we all had the same talents and passions! Or we all got married and had kids at the same time. Our stories would be so alike and boring.

God loves us enough to handwrite our stories and make them each special in their own way. That’s what makes your story so powerful… It is uniquely created by God and it’s yours and yours only!

So next time you compare your life to someone else’s, remember that’s THEIR plan, not yours.
