God's plans are not always my plans. Actually, 88% of the time (more than that, but I'm being generous to myself) my plans are not His plans. I once heard it said that you need to be stubborn with your dreams and goals, but you need to be flexible with how you get to them! Ultimately, God is going to work how He's going to work. Use discernment, seek biblical council, read His word. God is always gonna do what He's going to do. He not only displays redemption in our own lives, but Jesus was the personification of redemption. Moreso than that, HE IS REDEMPTION. And because we know this, we can know He will turn our plans into His masterpiece in His timing. We just need obedience and flexibility not only in how we get there, but we need to allow God space to make our dreams bigger and more different than we could've ever planned for!
