We all need a game plan in life; what is yours? My game plan is to ask God what He wants me to do. Allowing that one principle has far changed my life for the better! Years ago, unfortunately, I turned my back on God when I was younger but learned that is not wise. Legendary former basketball coach John Wooden once said, “It’s always about focusing not on the mistakes but on the lessons learned from them.” 

God is not a magic genie, but He is our Heavenly Father who created us and loves us. My plan is to do God’s Will, God’s way, not my will, my way! We all need to have a game plan, without one, you are taking a chance that you will wonder and flounder. I have a plan to follow Jesus the rest of life, and to me, everything else are minor details. ~ Bill Greguska

Proverbs 16:3  Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

You will end up somewhere without a game plan, but not where you hoped!

No matter what kind of sports team you are on, you need a game plan to succeed. That same strategy applies to life too!  If you have a good game plan, you are on your way to living your life to the fullest. On this page, you will find some practical ideas to follow, which begin with pursuing a personal relationship with God and having God direct your steps in life. If you do not have a personal game plan set up now, make it your goal to get one started.  Ask God to direct you in all areas of your life, then ask God to give you the strength to carry out his plans with you. ~ Bill Greguska

I Really Like What God’s Game Plan Is:

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Game Plan To Find Happiness And Joy In Life!

  • Try to Smile More ~ Smiling can make us feel better, but it’s more effective when we back it up with positive thoughts. A smile is also an excellent way to reduce some of the pain we feel in troubling circumstances.


  • Exercise for 5- 10 Minutes Each Day (at least do some walking) ~ If you think that training is something you don’t have time for? Think again. Even 5-10 minutes profoundly affects our happiness and well-being, and it is an effective strategy for life and overcoming depression.


  • Get Enough Sleep and Rest ~ We know that sleep helps our bodies recover from the day and repair themselves and helps us focus and be more productive. It turns out that sleep is also essential for happiness.


  • Spend More Time With Friends and Family ~ “We are happy when we have family and friends; knowing that someone cares about you and that you can also care about them is priceless.



Additional Ideas For Developing A Good Game Plan!

Game Plan To Find Happiness And Joy In Life! NeedEncouragement.com

With a good game plan set up, you will be well on your way. But be sure to include God in your game plan.


  • Be Proactive ~ Being proactive is good news for those who worry about fitting new habits into already busy schedules. Make plans for your life, and try to do your best to stick to them. If you fall short, try, and try again.


  • Help Other People ~ One of the most exciting pieces of advice I found is to make yourself feel happier, and you should help others. One hundred hours per year (or two hours per week) is the enormous amount of time we should dedicate to helping others enrich their lives and yours.


  • Pray and Meditate ~ Meditating on God’s word is like eating food; you first put the food in your mouth, chew it a little while, and then take it in. In the same way, reading the Bible works in a very similar way. Prayer is also a crucial habit for improving your focus in life and helping to keep you calm. It turns out it’s also obviously helpful in developing the peace of mind and a closer relationship with God we desire.


  • Practice Gratitude ~Practicing gratitude is a seemingly simple strategy, but one I’ve found to make a massive difference to my outlook on life. There are many ways to practice gratitude, from keeping a journal of things you’re grateful for, sharing three good things that happen each day with a friend or partner, and showing gratitude when others help you.




God’s Plans for My Life

(This section is from The Book I wrote)

Lord, I pray each day to better understand your plan for my life. Before I turned my life over to you, I did things I thought were okay. Later on, when I knew you better, I realized that the plans I had for my life were not always the same as yours. Even being in a relationship with you, Lord, it is difficult to cope with things during hard times. How do those without faith in you make it through a crisis?

Thank you for revealing yourself to me. Help me know you better and gain more of your wisdom each day through my relationship with you. I pray others will seek you and your plan for them. I try to share my faith, yet sometimes others react like a deer with bright lights in their eyes. Lord, help me seek your wisdom when sharing my testimony. I’m thankful for the comfort your word gives me, knowing quite well that you have a plan for each of us. I pray that the seeds I share with others help open their hearts and minds.

Lord, you saved me from a life of pain, a life without meaning or hope, and I am so thankful. Your word is my compass, guiding my life both in the good days and those not so good. I trust that your plans are perfect, and I am willing to change my plans to fit your ways, Lord.

Proverbs 21:30 ~ There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord.

I believe that God has a specific plan and reason He created each one of us. ~ Lisa Diane Whelchel American actress, singer, songwriter, author, and public speaker.
