I had plans…

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.

Love,

Esasina xoxo.

  1. I’ve been feeling like this for some time… I’ve had a several events like this the whole 2018. I got jobs. my mental health just couldn’t handle them. I’ve also grown and gotten to know myself.

  2. This is the same exact thing I’m going through. Work kept me occupied like forever then I had this breakdown, my arms won’t move. I became immobile. Day five into my resting day. God really comes through for His kids honestly. Thanks so much Padikwor Pardy❤️
