Change your plans but not your dreams

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. Prov. 13:12

Sometimes our plans seem to be drowning in setbacks and delays that cause us to doubt our dreams and give up hope. But there is a different between dreams and plans. Plans are only a way toward fulfillment of our dreams, not the dreams themselves. God is so much bigger than our plans and so much stronger and more creative than our imperfect execution of them. We can trust God with our plans because He is the giver of our best and most personally fulfilling dreams.

Lord, help me be flexible in my plans but steadfast in my dreams.
