Planning Ahead

I check my email this morning...My cousin send me this..Well, something good for me to start my life today...Lets share it..
Some people are planners.
They like thinking ahead and being prepared.
They get a high from being on top of things.

But some things are beyond planning.
And life doesn't always turn out as planned.

You don't plan for a broken heart.
You don't plan for a failed business venture.
You don't plan for an autistic child.
You don't plan for spinsterhood.
You don't plan for a lump in your breast.

You plan to be young forever.
You plan to climb the corporate ladder.
You plan to be rich and powerful.
You plan to be acclaimed and successful.
You plan to conquer the universe.
You plan to fall in love - and be loved forever.

You don't plan to be sad or hurt.
You don't plan to be broke or betrayed.
You don't plan to be alone in this world.
You don't plan to be shattered.

You plan to be happy.
Sometimes if you work hard enough, you can get what you want.
But most times, what you want and what you get are not the same.

We, mortals, plan.
But so does God in the heavens.

Sometimes, it is difficult to understand God's plans especially when
His plans are not in consonance with ours. Often, when God sends us
crisis, we turn to Him in anger. True, we cannot choose the cross
that God wishes us to carry, but we can carry that cross with
courage knowing that God will never abandon us nor send something we
cannot cope with.

Sometimes, God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes, He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes, God sends us pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes, God sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes God sends us illness so we can take better
care of ourselves.
Sometimes, God takes everything away from us
so we can learn the value of everything He gave us.
