God Always has a Plan, Just Go With It

A friend of mine sent me a message a while ago and she gave me some advice that will forever stick with me. She said:

"God always has a plan, just go with it."

Travis and I have been praying for a while looking for guidance and understanding on a particular subject. We have had a lot of challenges, but with what we were praying for, there was a lot of confusion as to what we should do.  I didn't understand until recently.  I realized the reason there was so much stress and confusion was because we were trying to stop what we knew was right.  We were trying to change what was in our hearts and the feelings we were having, but once we realized this we felt so much peace and relief.

The lesson we learned here was exactly this "God always has a plan, just go with it." It's like the flow of a river.  You can't control the current or go against, you just have to go with it. You can't stop what you know is right. You can't change God's plan for you, you just have to go with it. Yes, you may have worries and fears, but having faith and trust that the Lord will be by your side watching out for you every step of the way, brings great peace and comfort and those worries and fears fall away.

Sometimes, things happen that you may not like at the time or even expect. But in the end you will be grateful and will have grown so much through it all. It brings me so much comfort to know that my Father in Heaven is watching out for me and will help me every step of the way on this journey through life. 

So, if you are struggling with something and you can't seem to control what is coming your way, just remember, God always has a plan, just go with it! :)


  1. This is a very good message! I went back and read all of your A to Z posts. They are all very interesting. Keep up the great work!

  2. You are so right! It's awfully hard to remember sometimes, though! During my trip to Germany/Austria/Denmark last summer, the German Teacher's (I chaperoned a group of high schoolers) Motto was: "Let go, let God"! And we did...more than once!
