Sometimes hearing talks about God having a "plan" for your life gives me the same feeling as sitting with an investment banker going over a financial portfolio. It's like we've made Jesus into a guy that has great ideas on what stocks you should be investing in and what career you should be pursuing, and if you're not moving up the corporate ladder of Christianity, then you need to get with the program! That's not the Jesus I know. The Jesus I know accepts sinners and loves them day in and day out, whether they "get better" or not. No wonder so many Christians run around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to figure God's "plan" for their life. So we obsess over this "plan" and live in constant anxiety if we're not living in the "plan" set up for us. Isn't it enough of a "plan" to find out that Christ loves you unconditionally, and rest in that fact day after day?
