Im not where Im suppose to be in life and that simply depresses me. I had a chance like everyone else and I blew it. But unlike this world, I serve a God who is a God of second, third, forth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth..etc. chances. No, Im not where I suppose to be but Im eager to get there. To God nothing is surprising to Him.

I remember when I was going to my little cousins concert with my aunts. We had to get a GPS to navigate our way to get to the next city to see her. The GPS helped us alot esp when my aunt made a wrong turn. Instead of allowing her to go that way, the GPS would say “recalculating” and find a way to turn us around or find another road that will get us to wherever we suppose to be. Regardless of how many wrong turns we made, it would simply say “recalculating” and find a way. We made it to our destination inspite of our wrong turns.

I believe God is the same way. If we make a wrong turn somewhere in life, if we trust in Him, he will recalculate and  He will make our way straight. No matter how many wrong turns we make, He will get us where He wanted us the whole time. Who knows maybe our wrong turns were anticipated…
This blog is to document my goals for 2011. Ive made some wrong turns in my life but Im declaring that this year, 2011, will be my most proserious year! Im tired of being medicore in my own eyes and I plan on believing and trusting in God to work my situation out and to get me to where I need to be.
“A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps” Proverbs 16:9
I know this is going to take a lot of effort in me. To give my life or to trust something to someone is crazy. Human nature, we want to control everything we can, but this is the task thats at hand. Im going to trust God and see where he takes me this year. Through all the days and prayers and praises and worship and tears and whatever else, I trust you God. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things you cannot see (hebrews 11:1-2) and I think Im old enough to know that faith doesnt always- isnt suppose to always make sense. I understand that sometimes trusting in God doesnt always seem like the most popular thing to do, but I believe regardless. I know its wierd, but if you take this journey with me, maybe you will see what my future holds…and then maybe you too will learn and understand the power of God and a life lived for Him.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
