The Problem with Planning

Hiiiii! Wonderful and Beautiful people of GODπŸ’πŸ’πŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈ How are you doing? Happy New Year!βœ¨πŸŽ†

It’s been so long since I last blogged. I have been more overwhelmed than busy. The thought of what I needed to do, became a heavier burden than, doing what needed to be done.

This is why I am not a fan of planning, as fantastic as it is. Planning is almost like the stretches before exercise. As far as I am concerned, if the stretches go beyond five minutes, then my exercise is done. I suppose that’s why my stomach is not table flat yet, but that is a blogging for another day.

Planning — which means getting everything in theoretical order before beginning anything practical — is mentally and psychologically tasking; which can sometimes be draining and even traumatizing.

The excitement of starting something new may gradually be replaced, with a desperate prayer for success laced with fear or just not doing anything until you have all the resources and everything else needed.

These are some of the “dark” sides of planning that I don’t hear people talk about. It can be draining and exhausting — if I haven’t said that before. Not to mention, time-consuming.

Because you are reminded of what your inabilities and limitations are. Wounds are poked at and scars juggle your memory of how you got them. You can be sure that at least one the following: fear, PTSD, mild depression, discouragement, feeling impotent or inadequate; may come knocking before you are done planning.

Happy New Year πŸŽ† again people.πŸ’

Unhand this door, your Highness“, Indira fumed.

“Pray, allow me explain, Indira.”

I Wish…I Hope…I Warn

I wish I’m that person you turn to for succour…after God

I wish I am that person you see, that light up your world …after God

I wish I’m that person that makes your heart glad___

I wish I’m that person__

_that is an out-of-this-world experience…

An aroma, essence like the Heavenly brew…

Because its a brew so Heavenly it exceeds your expectations…

You can only find me, if your Heavenly senses are sharpened…enlightened.

Without your Heavenly senses

You will wonder…

Like the woman at the well

Who had wondered from man to man

Seeking…

Seeking who to quench her thirst…

Knowing it was a man who had the key of wisdomπŸ”‘

To unlock the mystery of her need

Knowing not what man it was, she wondered still

Until she came to the 8th Man…

JESUS CHRIST

And she knew that her search was over…

For she was led to the spring from within

From whence cometh, water that quenches thirst forever…

She need not seek for nor fetch from wells…

That leave her wanting…

Do not wait too long

To find your own Heavenly brew…

Who knows?

It might be given to another…

More…worthy…than you

As it was with Vashti

Who was replaced by Esther…

Sharpen your Heavenly senses and hasten your search

That it might be said of you…
