Make a plan, work the plan
By Ken Lynn (7/7/2018)
I tell my kids that they should “Make a plan, work the plan”. This epithet has been repeated so many times that I am not sure they remember the original lesson. We often find ourselves in dire situations and without a clear path to rescue. We need a salvation, so we look outwardly for spiritual intercession or internally as to whether we have need for repentance. This meditation process naturally leads us to hope, but that is only a partial victory. Don’t get me wrong; hope isn’t a bad thing; it is just the first step. It’s not a physical solution, action plan, and it’s definitely not a complete victory.
Hope is the groundwork we have as we “envision” and explore ideas that will eventually become a goal. A solution to any problem, or our victory, must include an understanding of what success will look like when we achieve it.
