Make Room For the Unexpected.
Yesterday after church, we went out to lunch with this wonderful class that we are a part of. All younger than us, the class members are mostly in their twenties. Some are married. Some are single. We love this class.
Anyway, yesterday morning one of our class leaders invited everyone to go somewhere for lunch together. It wasn’t planned. It wasn’t scheduled. Rather, it was a spontaneous moment. Most of the class ate lunch together. The food was great. The time together was even better.
It was a reminder to me of the importance of staying flexible. Plans are great but I don’t ever want my plan to smother spontaneous moments in life. You never really know what God might do in some of these "random" moments.
So this week, I will have a plan. I will begin each day with a schedule, appointments, etc. Yet, I never want to allow that to completely rule. Who knows what God might do in some unplanned moment of the day?
