Last year, our Dallas Mavericks were the NBA Champs. Then to the surprise of many Mavs fans, they let Tyson Chandler and several other free agents sign with other teams. They had a plan: it was to save money so this year they could sign the hottest free agents on the market.

However, recently those plans have backfired and it does not look like we are going to get the big players we thought we would. So, now what? Plan B or even plan C, we just have to wait and see.

Plan B’s are common in life; they certainly were experienced in the Bible. God gave Moses a Plan B at the burning bush in the desert and eventually the Children of Israel ended up in the Promised Land because of it.  Kind David needed a Plan B after he sinned with Bathsheba, and he learned more about God’s grace and forgiveness than he ever had known before.

Plan B’s are not always a bad thing. If you need a plan B today, look for God in your burning bush, or cry out to God and ask for forgiveness. You may just be better for it.

Have a Blessed!
