When God Rewrites Your Plan
by Terri Bonin
A few years ago after the holidays’ nausea swept over me like a title wave and regret settled in. Can’t I splurge on rich food just once without feeling this way I thought? Or maybe I have what the kids have been passing around?
Lying in bed green to the core, I rearranged my schedule in my head. I don’t have time to be sick. I need to prepare for the spring semester, take down Christmas decorations, write 4 articles, and prepare to speak at a MOPS brunch. Lord, please heal me!
Life has a way of rearranging our well-laid plans. Not only had I mapped out the entire month of January, but also my calendar was packed for the upcoming new year! However, it seems the Lord sometimes rewrites the timing of events on our calendars just like with the pandemic!
My nausea turned out to be…
…another little Bonin on the way. God was entrusting us with yet another soul to raise. We were blown away excited! Pregnancy, however, slowed me down and changed travel plans for us, so we had to push back a few of the trips we had on the schedule.
I trust God knows what is best for my family and His Kingdom, so I rest in His decision to rewrite our plans. He is trustworthy. He is good. He is faithful. I feel overwhelmingly privileged that He continues to bless us in spite of our shortcomings. I’m so thankful He continued to enlarge our family; children are an eternal blessing we will enjoy forever.
Happy New Year and know that when God rewrites your plans, He can be trusted!
