Plans Nobody Else Can Have

There are so many times that some children and adults are told by their parents that they were not planned, some will even be told that they were not wanted. Truth of the matter is that we were all planned and wanted. Our Father has planned us. He knew us before we were knitted together in our mother's womb. We are told so many times in the Bible that He knows the plans for us and that we were created for a certain purpose.

So why were we created? Sometimes we may not realize why we were ever created. We may even say to ourselves that our life does not amount to much. Please have the confidence that God will use you in ways that you will never know. Each one of us is planned. We may never understand the reason why we were born until our Father calls us home.

I have seen and heard that even an introvert affects 10,000 lives. You cannot even start to figure out how many lives you will change, only God knows. 

I have met plenty of instructors, firefighters, law enforcement and clergy that have no clue how many people they affected, but when they are called home to our Maker, that is when their families find out. There are times where they meant so much to so many that not everyone can fit into the building for the service. I have seen too many times rooms and buildings overflowing with lives they saved, or helped.

There are times where we engage with people that we call coincidence, but it is really an appointment by God. We have people who come into our lives that may steer us or help us with something that we were about to throw up our hands and give up, but God sent them to us.

You weren't planned? Nonsense. God created each one of you with love. 

Please, while you have the time, tell someone how much they mean to you. Don't wait to only tell the family.

I appreciate each person that comes into my life, each emergency responder, every student, each patient, counselor, each friend and stranger. God knows what He is doing, when we are born to a family but we are blessed by the other family that we develop. I myself put it that I have a family of blood, but many times I consider my family of smoke a lot closer.

When we meet, God wanted me to meet you and you to meet me. Why? We may never know, but God does.

Thank you to each of you. You may have been feeling low, but maybe this will help.

You are special to God and He planned you to be around and He has a job for you to do.

Stay safe,
