This week,I would have gone to the salon,braided my hair and would have shopped for work.
I would have had dinner with my friend after work.
I would have attended a meeting with my colleagues this evening.
I would have gone to the cinema with Maame before she goes back to school this weekend.
Oh! I had plans
I was supposed to coordinate an event with the part time company I work with.
I was going to catch up on blogging this week.
I thought I had this week figured out but…
This scripture has been screaming at me these past few days,
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man,but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”
Proverbs 19:21 ESV
I didn’t plan on staying in bed all week in my nightie and head scarf.
I didn’t plan on postponing my meetings and dates,
I didn’t plan on being home all week,just resting and eating,
Nope,that was not part of the plan!
My big sister got married last week💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾 and I was very busy ensuring that everything went smoothly.
Everyone kept hinting that I needed to rest but I didn’t know that God had the Master plan and was going to ensure that I did nothing but rest.
God has a way of slowing us down to get some rest when we feel the pressure and urge to keep going.
I am not sick Fam,I just have a temporary condition which requires little movement,a lot of rest and drinking a lot of water and juices.
I am enjoying my fourth day of rest in bed and I am still hoping that I will recover fully and make some more plans.(There I go again 🙊)
God really has a sense of humour but I am thankful anyway for these past few days,I needed this long break in bed even though I won’t easily admit it.
Don’t be worried Fam,I am recovering and I will keep all of you posted.
Let’s all learn to slow down and take a break sometimes,or else God Himself would teach us how.
I love you guys so much and I have missed you all.Sorry for going Missing In Action (M.I.A) on all of you.
