4 Things to Remember When Things Don’t Go As Planned

[tps_header]when things don't go as planned[/tps_header]

Heartbreak is inevitable. You will face it at some point in your life even if you try your best to escape it. Things will not go your way all the time, but no matter how painful the heartbreak, they are sometimes necessary in order to help you become your best version of yourself.

Here are four things to remember when things don’t go your way:

1. Setbacks do not define you

Your roadblocks don’t make you any less of a Christian.

Don’t let your setbacks define who you are. Sometimes you need to experience setbacks and roadblocks in order to become a more faithful and mature Christian. As James 1:2-3 said…  

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.”

2. Let your Faith arise

Don’t lose confidence in yourself or in God when things don’t go your way.

When things get off track, it doesn’t mean that God’s wonderful plan (Jeremiah 29:11) for your life will never happen at all. Keep your faith and hold on to it unswervingly. Hebrews 10:23 said

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”

Despite undesirable situations, you should never waver your faith, but continually believe that God’s plan for your life will be awesome even if it’s not exactly what you’ve imagined.

Your journey towards your goal may not be as easy as expected, but he twists and turns of life are what makes it worth while
