Hey! Would you cut it out?!

Have you ever done something and someone else tries to tell you to do it another way, because it's apparently "better"? Isn't that a little annoying sometimes? As if your way isn't good enough or something?
Yeah. That can be a bit frustrating. 
Now you know how God feels!

Okay, now you may be thinking.. "Wait what? How God feels? What are you talking about?"
As followers of Christ, God has a perfect plan for each of our lives. So often, we try planning our own steps, or the way WE want to go, rather than letting it be up to God. We think that we know better, you know, because we're somehow smarter than God, and know ourselves better than God does even though He created us, riiiight? WRONG! Is it coming together now?
I bet you can think of a time when you tried to plan things yourself, or figure out a way to force things together rather than letting God do His thing. I know I can!
So here's my challenge to you: Stop trying to metal with God's plans! Trust Him because He loves you more than you know, so much that He sent His only son to die for you! Have faith in Him because He is faithful to those who love Him. And be excited, for the Creator of the universe is working in YOUR life, and you never know what amazing things may happen when you leave it up to Him! :)
Proverbs 16:9"In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps."
Proverbs 19:21"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails."   

Jeremiah 19:11"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."


  1. I love this Rachel, and I couldn't agree more! =D
    I know I've tried 'planning' things that went miserably wrong because I was trying to take the pen out of God's hand! He knows how to write best sellers...I don't! =D

    Oh, and this is Heather from school incase you were wondering! haha

  2. Yes so have I! Been there, done that! Always fails it seems.. Haha I love that line.. "He knows how to write best sellers.."

    You sound like you've read When God Write Your Love Story by the Ludy's huh? The whole pen thing? Hehe. Such a good book!

    YES! I knew it was you.. I'm actually a follower of your blog already. :) I love it! And your graphics are amazing! I do believe God has certainly gifted you with the ability to write and speak about love and the like. :)

  3. Well thank you Rachel!

    Yes! I have read "When God Writes Your Love Story"! I love reading those types of books, because though it may seem like its just to get you 'romanticly godly' so to speak, it actually plays out into regular life too! Like how you treat people, care for people, etc!
    Gotta love that!

    I am loving your blog though! Breath of fresh hair for sure! =D
