“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth; so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
Sometimes, we have expectations of what should happen in our lives. When things don’t work as planned, we become weary. We have difficulty looking beyond disappointments and forget to embrace a heart that trusts.
Distractions rob us of content. We become focused on what we WANT and forget God provides what we NEED. In the timing of His will, He blesses us with faithful love and helps us find PEACE to handle our days.
Jesus leads us to the Father. He guides us back where we belong. He renews our thoughts and helps us focus on Him. He humbles our hearts for surrender and teaches how to trust. He helps us remember who knows what's best for our lives.
Life will not always take us where we want to go. But God will bless us in the power of His plan. He will help us find HOPE to guide our days. He will open the eyes of our hearts so we will understand the gifts of His greatness. And He will help us remember WHY He is worthy of ALL of our love.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Dear God, Thank you for Your presence in our lives. Help us open the eyes of our hearts to ALL You will provide in Your time and for great purpose. You know our EVERY need. We will trust You to handle the happenings of our days. And we will find strength from PEACE that comes from a grateful heart. Amen
