Jeremiah 29:11

IMAG0226

Sunrise.

New beginning.  New plan.  What will each day bring?

These words in my daily devotion from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young were a great reminder to this “planner”.  Sarah talked about approaching the day with the awareness of who was Boss.  “…..on days when things go smoothly, according to your plans, you may be unaware of my sovereign Presence.  On days when your plans are thwarted, be on the lookout for Me!”

I was reminded that God may be doing something important that may be quite different than what I’ve expected.  His ways are always better than ours.   Instead of trying to figure out what all is happening, simply trust Him and thank Him in advance for the good that will come out of it all.

“For I know the plans that 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

  1. Sweet and comforting thoughts – that God is in control and we don’t have to worry about making those plans. So, so, lovely to see you posting, Denise. I hope you can find time to continue – I’m a selfish gal. I want more!
    love to you-

  2. wonderful words…and oh so true…if we stopped meddling in our own lives and left it entirely to the Lord we would all be a lot happier and truly content.

    A great thought Denise
