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. Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
When everything we’ve known has changed, it’s hard to find purpose for our days. We become weary in wonder and fearful of what's to come. But God knows how to guide our thoughts and help us stay on course. He readies us to handle new routine. He prepares us to journey with Jesus, as we head in a new direction and learn how it feels to TRUST.
The Bible says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV reminds us God will steer us in the right direction. He knows the longing of our hearts. He will arm us with strength. Our loving Provider will nurture our confidence. He will keep us moving ahead and bless us with mercy and grace.
Doubt will never allow us to BELIEVE good will come. We must remain faithful and pray. As we try and do our best, God will show how He’s guiding. He will give us desire to learn and provide the tools we need to grow. He will give us glimpses of what's ahead and prepare us to do amazing things!
We mustn’t worry if things don’t go as planned. Remember, God is working for the good! He will bring passion and purpose to our hearts and fill us with His greatness. He will prepare us to be ready when He asks us to GO...
“We mustn't be afraid to trust a known God to an unknown future!” As we let go of fear and find courage to move along, God will open doors of opportunity. We must never doubt His ability to ready us for what waits on the other side. He knows what’s best for our lives.
Joy is waiting to return where it belongs! God will lead us through our struggles. There will never be a day without His love. Peace will come from a grateful heart. We must allow ourselves to feel His nudging and be ready to respond. He will help us remember who's in charge of our days. We must BELIEVE in His promise to provide.
If plans have changed, we mustn't worry! Because of God’s great love, FAITH will see us through. One day we will look back and understand the power of His plan. Then, we will recognize what was needed to be renewed.
Dear God, thank you for the power of Your love. It brings strength in the changes of our lives. Help us focus on the love of Your faithfulness as we bravely journey with Jesus. You fill our hearts with everything we need to find peace in Your presence. We will keep our faith when things don’t go as planned and remember who is working for the good! Thank you for knowing what’s best for our lives. We will continue to TRUST and open our eyes for Your guiding. Thank You, Lord! You are worthy of praise, even in times of uncertainty. We love you so much and treasure Your love for us. Amen
