They dug in deep.
I could feel them consume my every thought.
I pondered on them daily.
I visualized a future for my best made plans.
"I will do this and I will do that," my spirit exclaimed with joy!
The excitement was not containable.
The joy was unshakable.
On this mountain top my tongue would sometimes slip.
I could not help but introduce my best made plans to all who would listen.
I could feel their ears perk up with curiosity. They waited in anticipation for my best made plans to come to pass.
I found out quickly that my best made plans did not like to play and they had an agenda of their own.
It was not long before my best made plans began to rob me of my sleep and my joy.
They consumed me, they engulfed me, and I was becoming my best made plans.
One day I awoke to find my best made plans laying in a million pieces before me.
They now lay dormant on the floor.
My heart that once held the best made plans now felt crushed and heavy with regret.
How could this happen?
My spirit quickened me...
Perhaps...I should relinquished control and say goodbye to my best made plans.
Perhaps next time...
I will not say, "I will do this or I will do that."
Perhaps in the future...
I will commit my best made plans to prayer.
Perhaps I will say...
If the Lord wills.
Goodbye my best made plans...until we meet again.
