It looks great!
I picked up the latest album from Van Morrison yesterday. Love the title! Born to Sing: No Plan B. Isn’t that great?
I’ve only heard a little of the music on the radio but I love Van’s folksy style so I probably would have bought it anyway.
But the “No Plan B” was the clincher!
Tell Me Van!
What makes you so confident that you would live your life without some kind of back-up plan? That you would be brave enough to put that out to the universe in word and song?
I love and admire that kind of courage.
I aspire to it.
My ‘No Plan B’
I’m working on some projects now that require the same courage.
I’m not sure if they’re going to work. Actually I think they will… if… I put in the time / energy / heart and soul necessary to succeed.
But what if they don’t… what is My Plan B?
Part of me doesn’t want to even have a Plan B. Because if I do then I might be tempted to sabotage Plan A because it’s just too hard… or too much work… or I’m not good enough… smart enough… talented enough… lucky enough…
You get the idea.
I might just settle for what was easier… less impossible.
But then the practical side of me says:
Everyone needs a Plan B!
Because Plan A might not work.
Plain and simple. It might be a bad plan.
Honestly… how does any rational person ever achieve their dreams with this dual-thinking-brain?
Jesus’ Plan B
I don’t imagine Jesus had a Plan B. He definitely thought about it though… in the Garden of Gethsemane:
Father… take this cup away…
But in the next breath, he went back to Plan A:
… not my will but yours…
God’s will = Plan A.
My will = Plan B.
Or at least that’s probably how it should be. It’s just that I get it backwards all too often.
So… I’ll be focusing on Plan A for now. Really want that one to work out.
Brave Voyager Onward !
