Hey God! I think I know what I want!

Oh, yeah?

What do you think of this plan? I wanna be a stay-at-home mom!

Cool! Go for it!

Or maybe, I wanna publish a best-seller!

Cool! Go for it!

I wanna be a kick-butt fitness coach!

Cool! Go for it!

I wanna be a sought-after corporate trainer and travel the world!!!

Cool! Go for it!

Just a second, Lord...why are you telling me to go for everything?
I thought you had a plan for my life?

Of course I do! A plan to give you a hope and a future.

Cool! So what carefully-crafted life-story have you penned for yours truly?? Amazing stay-at-home mom? New York Times Best-seller? Buff Fitness Guru? World-traveling Trainer? What am I supposed to do with my life? What is the plan??

My plan is to love you forever.

I beg your pardon?

My plan is to love you. Do what you want.

Wow, really?
Good plan. Thanks, Dad.

I have never forgotten a message I heard long ago:
“Love God and do what you want.”
Perhaps it is a message God planned for you to hear today. Love Him and do what you want.
He’ll love you back.
It’s all He’s ever wanted.
That's the plan.
