A blueprint is a detailed plan, whether literal or figurative. It is a guide for making something, it is a design or pattern that can be followed.
Synonyms include: Plan, Design, Outline
Knowing what a blueprint is now, can you say what you think is in your life’s blueprint? Success? Failure? Low self concept?
Who designed your life’s blueprint? You? Your parents? Society? God?
Whenever a building is to be erected, an architect designs a blueprint which contains detailed plans on how the building would look. The same thing applies in the life of a person.

Yeah! You cannot even begin to imagine the plans of God for you, they are so big. God is a big thinker; He sees the big picture, He knows the end from the beginning. His thoughts are higher than your thoughts, His ways higher than your ways.
You may have plans planned out for yourself, and think that is the best you can be, but you know what?
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.1 Corinthians 3:19
