Plan B

  This is what we did on Sunday.  And it was beautifulWe were so honored to be a part of the morning and M's dedication.

It felt like the morning was tailor-made for me, for us. I shouldn't be surprised because I don't really believe in coincidences.  When I saw that the message was entitled "Plan B" I knew it would be restoring.

Here are some of the notes I took:

The problem with "plan B" is
there's no time to plan.

  Could it be that "plan B" was "plan A" all along?  Because of what is has helped us to become? 

We focus on the DESTINY;
while He focuses on the PROCESS.

It's as much ABOUT THE PERSON WE'RE BECOMING as the stuff we're experiencing.
 And if we could only get ahold of that TRUTH we can live a wonderful life.  We can ADJUST and ADAPT when our "plan A" fails us or our expectations.
I feel like I'm in "plan B" right now, I felt like that back in March too.  But it's not quite as scary as it was the first time.  I feel more abandoned to THE REALITY that I'm not even in charge of my life anyway.  And you know what, there's SO MUCH FREEDOM IN THIS, in this not caring about my life and what happens to it.  Don't get me wrong, I love my life and those in it, but they aren't mine,
And I'm more okay with that then ever before.  

"The Lord will w-o-r-k  o-u-t His plans for my life~~~for Your FAITHFUL LOVE, O Lord, endures forever.
Don't abandon me, for you made me."

Psalm 138:8 (New Living Translation)

As I read this post I thought of this passage from the Chronicles of Narnia;

"...Aslan is a lion--the Lion, the great Lion."

"Ooh!" said Susan, "I'd thought he was a man. Is he--quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion."

"That you will, dearie, and no mistake," said Mrs. Beaver, "if there's anyone who can appear before Aslan without their knees knocking, they're either braver than most or else just silly."

"Then he isn't safe?" said Lucy.

"Safe?" said Mr. Beaver. "Don't you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King I tell you."

Plan B isn't safe, it requires us to give up what was never really ours, but it is good.
