I HAVE A PLAN

I Have a Plan.png

So you try to convince me…

….you tell me to make some space

To move at His pace

To slow down

To unclutter

To unwind

To be less busy

And reprioritize

But I have a plan

I’m a man

I know what I want

Where I want to be in ten years

Unlike my peers

I have a plan

I’m working hard

That’s not bad

They spill tears

They are too scared to face their fears

But I’m better than them

I’m a realist

I’ve got it all figured out

I’m learned

I’ve read all the books

I’m prepared

I don’t have room for what you ask for

Faith?!

You’ve got to be kidding me!

Faith can’t determine my fate

Wake up!

Smell the coffee!

I don’t have time for all this

I’m a realist

I live in the real world

Get your head out of the clouds

I laugh so hard

 

So you tried to convince me…

….you told me to make some space

To move at His pace

To slow down

To unclutter

To unwind

To be less busy

And reprioritize

But I had a plan

I refused to listen

I never asked what He wanted

I never found out what His will is

I mocked you

I had a plan

I worked hard

Now I’m aged and weak

With so much free time on my hands

I feel empty

I know something is missing

And I know what it is

I thought I had it all figured out

I was foolish

I never read your book

I relished the chaos of a selfish life

Now I have no wife

No kids

Just me

I’m on my knees

I need you!

I seek you!

Help me Lord!

I’m sorry!

I accept you!

I have so much time for you now!

Use me!
