The plan?

"She laughs with no fear of the future, for her hope is in me."

I pray to become the kind of woman who is described by this verse. For a planner like me, this kind of confidence is truly mind-boggling! I am the type of woman who carries around a planner, enjoys having every single detail figured out ahead of time, and does not like spontaneous decisions. I am not one for surprises, nor do I like spur of the moment plans. Part of this is because of my personality. I'm a very type A person, the typical over-achiever who likes to get things done. So, naturally, I like to have my future planned out. But honestly, I'm learning my future is uncertain-I have no idea how my life is going to turn out! If I'm being honest, this is a scary thought for me. I'm used to planning my life, but in reality, I have no control whatsoever. Which brings me back to the above verse. I'm praying to become the kind of woman who does not fear the future because God is reigning in my life. I can put my future in His hands and not worry about the uncertainties that come my way. What a blessing that is!
