Ever been asked a question and you answer, “I don’t know” ?
That is not a fresh answer to give. Even if you are not certain about your plans, you should always have a plan – A plan in motion.A friend recently asked me a question about my plans after my masters program and I answered in an unsure manner. I didn’t know what exactly it was I would do. I also added that I am waiting on God for direction. “Son, it is easier to direct a moving vehicle,” he said, “no matter how slow it is going.”
Being a Do-Something person, he needn’t say more; I got it.
Recently, I have observed that the mind can do one of two things: Think up excuses, or think up solutions.
Oftentimes, we find ourselves thinking up how to explain our anticipated failure rather than spend that time and energy working out ways of solving the problem, or actually solving the problem.
Notice that when you begin to put down positive thoughts to paper – possible ways of wriggling out of that seemingly tight corner – you observe that it it wasn’t very tight after all. You begin to take one step at a time, and before you know it, you’ll have reached a solution and seen the light out of that hitherto land-locked circumstance!
Perhaps you want to spend more time praying about it, don’t be complacent! When asked, “What is your plan?” Don’t answer Christianly, “I am seeking God’s face,” when you are actually doing nothing!
Have a plan. If it is to pray, pray! If to fast, my dear, set time apart and fast, and don’t break before time!
It is well with you!
