Do You Trust God To Revise Your Plan? // Glimpses Link Up — 31 Comments

  1. The older I get, the more I realize that I dream according to my experience. God’s dreams for our lives are according to HIS experience – which is way of my my league. His ideas are always so much better than mine – even when they take me through hard places! Thanks for sharing your heart and wisdom, Barbie – and reminding us that His plans are so much better than ours.

  2. Thank you, Barbie, for hosting the weekly link up!
    I absolutely love the list of “glimpses” that you include at the end of each article!
    “Will you trust him to bring your story through to completion?” What a thought-provoking question! Wish I could answer with a resounding YES, every time! But that has not always been my truth. I’m a work in progress. However, I am learning that His ways are always best, and always for our good!
    Thank you for the reminder today.

    • I’m so glad you stopped by Rachel. Allowing God to bring my story to completion, HIS way, is something I’m working on as well. Have a blessed weekend.

  3. Thank you, Barbie. I second what Bettie comments. I am so thankful for how patient God is with us. It is so difficult to open our hearts to God’s revising, and my stubborn heart fights against His plans. But yes, His way is always better! I love your searching question – “Will you trust Him to bring your story through to completion?” Praying right now that we will! Love and hugs to you!

  4. Thanks for always sharing from your honest heart with us here! I am so thankful that the Lord does not give up on me, when I whine and complain about revising “my” plans! What mercy He gives me, as He just listens and waits while I pause and stew. His way is always better, and I know that full well! Oh, I pray that I also would be quicker to adapt to HIS plans, and not my own. Blessings to you, and I pray that you are continuing to feel better!

    • I keep thinking I am learning my lesson, but I still spend way too much moaning and groaning things. I’m so thankful He’s patient with me. Blessings!

  5. Barbie, I love how you described how life’s plans get revised versus being changed. I know this ha’s been true in my life. The great revision in my life had to do with how I would become a mom. I am so thankful the edited plans God had for my life!

    • Thank you for stopping by Emily and for linking up. I read your beautiful post and left a comment. I hope you will stop by again.

  6. I’m thankful that God knows all the correct revisions to make, including the timing and degree. We are blessed to have a Father who cares for us in all the details. The hardest part is remaining open to the changes he wants to make… Thanks for this, Barbie.

    • That is so true. It’s so hard to remain open and accepting of change at times. Trusting that He really does know what He’s doing.

  7. Great thoughts, Barbie. I especially like what you said about us being willing participants. I’m so glad that I have a kind and loving and good God making the plans for me. I really want to be a willing participant; sometimes I feel like a sheep with ADD. 🙂 I’m glad He continues to gently bring my attention back to Himself!

  8. Good morning, Barbie. I think most of us have gotten hurt in some way in ministry. I try to remind myself that even ministry is filled with, done by, and focused on sinful people like me! Ouch! But it sounds like you’re well on your way to allowing God to use it for your good and His glory. Blessings as you continue down that road.

  9. It will be a continuing process until I get to heaven, so I guess I better get used to it. 🙂 It’s not easy to have things change just when I get “settled,” and I am afraid I chafe about it too much, but I need to remind myself He has a reason for it and will help me through it.

  10. Barbie,
    I am learning that I have to allow God to take me down some paths that I may not have chosen for myself. That is always hard, but each time I take a big gulp of air and follow Him, He is faithful to lead me on those paths. He doesn’t point the way and then stand back and watch me stumble. Each new and scary path I follow Him on gives me confidence to trust His direction and will for my life. Easier said than done though at times.
