I know, I know the saying is supposed to be, “Don’t do anything until you have all your ducks in a row,” but I am a cat person. Life is about planning for what may come but it is not about being consumed by planning. The Bible says in Proverbs 16:9, “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” While is in the heart of man to plan his way God ultimately knows what is best for us and may alter those plans or change them entirely.
When I was young I had all these plans for my life, whom I would marry and what career I would have. None of my plans came to fruition. Instead God led me in a different direction even though I tried to keep veering off course. While my life now is not where I want it to be I know it is where God needed it to be in order to serve Him better. So plan your life and retirement because it is always good to be be prepared but don’t be surprised if God alters your plans.
