Have you ever had a plan that didn’t work out?
In Proverbs 31 God introduces us to a woman who is “clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future” (Proverbs 31:25). And the hearts of all God’s girls say, “Yes, please!” But do we really believe it’s attainable?
Armed with our dreams and sure of God’s plan, my husband, Luke, and I set off on our adventure in the National Football League while visions of Super Bowls danced in our heads. When the Cleveland Browns drafted Luke into the NFL, we expected to spend his entire career there. We believed God would make Luke a starter and give him success, but God’s plan proved different.
Less than a year later, we packed up our home and flew south, leaving all those hopes behind and learning to pick up the pieces of our shattered dreams. In our 13 years in the NFL, we’ve been on 5 different teams and Luke has only started a handful of games, spending the majority of his career on the sideline as the backup quarterback.
When God’s plan sidelined Luke, we feared it sidelined our dreams as well. But we’ve learned along the way …
Even when God’s path seems to sideline our plans, it never sidelines our purpose.
