Last week, I took a break from blog writing to write for some other purposes: seminary, church, books, and a tad more. It was a relief to be honest, a good breather. But it didn’t come without a challenge. You see, I have a goal for this year to write at least five pieces each week (a total of 260 for the year). The break meant the end of that goal … sorta.
If you remember my series in goal setting, I mentioned that our goals should be seen in light of God’s will. By this I meant that God has a purpose for your life that is expressed in His permissive will. He has things He wants you to do but will, for reasons of His own, allow you to do things that are not divinely desirable.
At the same time, God has a purpose for your life that is expressed in His providential will. This is the big picture. It entails the master plan that will not be altered by any choice you make. It is the plan that includes you, but takes in account all the other intricacies of creation. There is no stopping this plan.
