The Blessing in God Wrecking Your Plans


In January, I wrote a post called Everything Has Its Time. If you haven’t read it, click here to do so. After that post, God closed one door in my life and opened a new one. I was beyond excited!

However, for some reason (false loyalty, pride, fear, etc.), I kept my hand on the doorknob of the closed door as I walked through this new door. I tried to stay committed to something that God clearly removed me from.

There was nothing wrong with the other thing I held on to. However, my season was over. I completed my assignment. I should have moved on and focused all of my energy and time on this amazing blessing God gave me. I did not, and it eventually (last week to be exact) blew up in my face.

I guess some of us (maybe just me) have to learn things the hard way. I could not give what God removed me from (the closed door) AND what God blessed me with (the open door) each 100% of my time. So neither got the best of me.

The funny part is once I notified the “closed door” that I was moving on so I could 100% focus on my “open door”, they moved on to someone else within minutes. Minutes! Trying to hold on to that door, I was blocking someone else’s blessing.

God will wreck your plans when He sees your plans are about to wreck you!

I nearly jeopardized what I prayed for, to hold on to something God told me to walk away from. What I held on to was GOOD, but what He gave me was BETTER! He loved me so much, He wrecked my plans and let it blow up in my face so I could finally do what I should have done in the first place.

If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello. Paulo Coelho

Say goodbye to that closed chapter without apology. Allow God to bless you with something new. Don’t look back. You’re not going that way!

Have a blessed day!
