Dear yummy mummies, lets have a quick chat, go grab a drink (only if you have read your bible sha, if not drink water) and get comfy….
My name is Loveth and I am a planner, not the wedding type but I like things organised , I like my lists and I’m one of those “plan for every situation kind of people”, I believe strongly in “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.
Some people however like to take each moment as it comes “living in the moment gang”, and I know that sounds inspirational but it could never be me.
I like to think that there are people like me out there, who plan every single detail of their life (because I cannot be alone). I feel disconnected and disorganised if I don’t plan.
So I will always have a grocery list, a To-do list, I always need to know what I am doing, what’s on the agenda, and all things details. My husband on the other hand is a “do as you go” type of person, he rolls with the punches and it looks exciting because he just faces the day as it comes, cute I know but my organised self is cringing at the thought and screaming not me. Oh No!!! If I as much as step out of the house without thinking of the journey and planning my waka, its over and I am totally disoriented.
Recently I came across this passage in Proverbs
It reminded me again that I can plan all I want, but God’s Plans are higher than mine.
So my yummy mummies, I know you had a plan, like loads of us do. like me you had it all written down, get married at 23 to the best man ever(and you did), have your first baby by 25 and that plan hasn’t just worked yet. Yes some people had it easy and you are wondering why you? I am just here to remind you that we can’t plan it all, we can hope for it , pray for it, we can dream it, we can write the vision, make it plain and believe for it but ultimately we need to step back and trust God.
I am learning to hand over my life to God, to have faith in His process and plans for me. If you’re like me, not having control over a situation won’t be easy but you need to learn to trust Him with everything, especially your babies. So whatever you do this year, plan to wait on God, Give GOD room to scatter your plans and ideas about how it should happen or the when, allow God have His way in your miracle birth and I promise it will make sense in the end.
God bless you all loads,
