Did I mess up God's plan for me?

Did I mess up God’s plan for me?

Did I mess it up?

Sometimes life can be discouraging. Not always, but sometimes. Like when comparing myself to who I think I should be or to others around me.

When feeling discouraged like that, I’ve wondered if I messed up God’s plan. Did I miss an opportunity? or make a mistake that threw everything off?

God’s plan is bigger than my choices.

…like a giant ship. I can walk around it in any direction I want, but as long as I don’t jump off, I’m still heading in the right direction.

God’s plan is in place. He is at the helm, and His great and powerful ship flows toward salvation and exaltation. —M. Russell Ballard

In reality, there isn’t anything I can accidentally do to mess up my Heavenly Parent’s plan for me.

It’s harder to mess up God’s plan than to stay in it when we’re sincere.

Why is it still hard to trust?

Because I sometimes focus too much on the deck and forget that I’m on a boat. I lose sight of the bigger picture.

I appreciate some advice in The Alchemist prologue…

We must be prepared to have patience in difficult times and to know that the Universe is conspiring in our favor, even though we may not understand how.

Paulo Coelho

Our Heavenly Parents can always see the bigger picture, even when I can’t.

When I can’t see it myself, I can trust that they do.

Trying to do that has been my HWN lately.

p.s. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! It’s been wonderful spending time with family in California :)
