Improvised Planning

The practice of planning and organizing and structure has always somewhat eluded me. Don’t get me wrong, over the years I have, by necessity, become somewhat of a planner and organizer but it is most certainly not natural. My default mode is to just sit back and what happens happens and make it up as I go. I even use trendy buzz words to justify it saying things should be more “organic” than structured.

Just thinking- many Christians love Jeremiah 29:11. It’s a life verse for many and they look at it as a personal promise to them. It does reveal the heart of God to His people. Many Christians think it is a promise to us today and I think we can probably apply it to us but we should also understand that the context was to Jews living in Babylon at the captivity.
