Giving God a Blank Page to Plan Your Life
For several years I have tried to get my life to the blank piece of paper stage. I have endeavored to present God with a blank piece of paper so He can plan my life.
It started like this... Years ago I was explaining to a friend that I was at one of those “trying to discover God’s will” points in my life. I have been there many times before and will be again. His advice was something like, “Maybe you need to start with a blank piece of paper and give God ample space to plan out the rest of your life. Make yourself completely available to Him.” That made a lot of sense. I left our meeting, however, with a very probing question for myself. Did I even have blank piece of paper? Over the next few weeks, through prayer and discipline, I attempted to get there.
Over the years since then, I have periodically continued this self-examination. To do this I have to be honest with myself and the plans I have for my life. I certainly want to follow His lead, but I think many times my page is loaded with my own agenda. If I want my page to be completely blank, then I need to offer it back to God, with nothing on the paper.
Have you given God a blank page to plan your life? Be prepared. He loves a challenge and He is great at taking nothing and making something, when you let Him draw the picture.
