It is very OK to make plans for our lives, but God has plans for us that we can never imagine. Read Jer.29:11 and he has the last word on our plans, if we are his children and our lives are in his hand.
Someone said "life is a song", but for each of us, we sing in different keys, scores,timings and compositions, but however we sing, Someone is there to sing along with us in whatever way we need Him.
Wearing masks never make problems go away, only hides them. God is there to help us with guidance and direction in all that we go through, no matter how bad or painful, He will never leave us or forsake us in our trials and troubles.
