A journey to Happily Ever After…Book study #Lesson 1: Plan for the unexpected

I am so excited to be able to give back and share this with you!  This is the first Reflection Opportunity from my book Can’t Dia.beat.us that is available in both paperback and downloadable versions through Amazon or any major online bookstores.  Grab a notebook and let’s get started!  If you want your own personal copy of the book, it’s only a click away.  Purchase your copy now!

At the end of each chapter, reflections are included for self improvement and positive personal growth.  I hope you enjoy doing this book study with me and I hope it gives you strength and encouragement in your life’s journey.  :)

#1
Think about a time in your life when you thought you had everything all figured out and had to completely change your plan.  How can you be more prepared for things that are out of your control?

You might not be able to prevent certain things that happened to you in your life, but do you have great friends you can talk to about it? Do you have an outlet for stress or a way to be encouraged?

Can you see that things you go through are part of your personal life journey and accept that you might have to go through specific situations in order to learn and grow?

I have found there was nothing I could do to prevent certain situations in my life, but by having a great support group of people and positive outlets, it made things more possible. 

This is my plan for whatever unexpected thing comes my way next:  Try hard and proceed with love.

Take a few minutes to reflect and journal that experience in a notebook or share it on my Facebook Author page: Trina Licavoli Gunzel. 

I look forward to hearing from you and growing stronger through these reflections, together.  Leave a comment with something you are thinking about, an encouraging scripture, or a positive word for others.

A scripture I am reflecting on for strength today is:  Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”  How does that scripture speak to your heart?  It fills mine with peace and comfort, no matter what I’m going through.  :)

Best wishes and prayers for a wonderful week,

Trina
