Mocha Latte Baked Oats

Plan B & Mocha Latte Baked Oats

Proverbs 16:9 (nirv)

In your heart you plan your life. But the Lord decides where your steps will take you.


I talked about this a little bit in an Instagram post yesterday, but I felt like I had to expand on it a little bit more, because I guess I just wasn’t done thinking about it. Have you ever been so certain of something that you couldn’t see past it? An idea, hope, dream, or plan? I know I have, and the high expectations I had set felt like they were going to physically break my heart.

For years, we tried to get pregnant, and each day, each month, and each year was filled with constant disappointment. The longer we tried, the more focused on the plan I became, and the more bleak our outcome started to feel.

I think that when we get so attached to our own plans, and our will, we lose sight of the big, powerful God that’s working His amazing plans behind the scenes. We often fail to realize that there’s a better plan that’s been in the works all along.

When we only see our own ideas and hopes, we’re bound to be disappointed with unmet expectations. God’s plan was never meant to be Plan B, yet it often feels like it is because our commitment to our own ideas. Friend, it’s okay to let hope back in.

But this time, we can find our hope in something real, something tangible, and something certain; God’s plan. Although incredibly difficult, if we can learn to surrender all that we are to all that He has for us, our outlook on life will change for the better. We’ll begin to experience less disappointment and more life. I don’t know about you, but that’s one of the more freeing thoughts that I’ve had in a very long time.


What plans are you holding onto that you need to surrender to God? Is your focus and and will keeping you from experience the different, but good plans that God has for you?


For a heart that’s completely surrendered to the Lord.
